The thing about mobile phones
Back in the 90’s … wait it wasn’t that long ago…
Let’s try it again.
Back in 2006 while studying in MES CAC&S, I encountered a guy. This is guy whom I shall not name for obvious reasons had a blingy phone. If my memory serves me right, it was the N73 or perhaps N95… Now the problem was that every time I encountered him, I wouldn’t remember his name. I would remember the make of his mobile phone. Every time!
This was a classic case where your mobile phone has a bigger persona than you, which I believe is the ultimate #fail.
So while buying my first phone, I bought a nondescript, rarely seen Motorola RIZR , i loved the way it slid , i loved Motorola and best of all it sit my style . and next came the not-too-flashy- Spica, which has been a delight but not once imposing.
So next time you buy a phone ask yourself: Am I defining the phone or is the phone defining me?
