and the debate heat’s up. does the world need another phone maker? will this one be a good phone? does it suck? i found this blog entry today and it is kind a funny so i like to share it with you :-)
And from the land of the Finns and the land of the vikings cameth phones that looked like soapbars from hell. And they carrieth the most hated chicklet-keys from days long forth. And they made you listen out 8 voice-mails before to get to the one you wanted to hear. And they made you look like the spastic men, tying to send text-mail whilst traveling fingering the chicklets. And worst of all, these phones looketh like like a Moulines kitchen-mixer from the years sixty of the 20th century past.
And yes… Go home and play with your brown Zune, moron.
