Re: mobile phone use
The nail has been hit on the head - Nokia have finally cottoned on to the fact that there exist people who want to use their phones for their intended purpose, that is actually speaking to people (shock, horror!) and/or sending the occasional text and who don't want want something packed full of useless shit which reduces battery life to nearly nothing (N95, anyone?) - if the other manufacturers can follow suit and give us a bit more choice, so much the better (the Moto F3 doesn't count - see below)
I went 'back to basics' with a Nokia 6300 - nice phone, has a few bells and whistles I can do without (camera, MMS etc.) but it reminded me why I liked my late, lamented 6210 back in the day. If they can make this thing easier to use than the Motorola F3 which, on balance, won't be hard, they might be onto a winner if it reaches this side of the Puddle.
My needs are simple: make calls and send texts - Bluetooth is nice, but not essential (I prefer to use a hands-free but it ain't the end of the world if I can't). How hard is that, really?
