Re: My new Nokia
Thank you! It's nice to know that I'm not the only one with this complaint. My needs are similar:
E-mail, texts, GPS/maps, the occasional phone call. My app use is mostly for things like finding/paying for parking, and reading news/articles/books. I technically do use 'social media', but they're almost always apps designed to facilitate old-fashioned, live, in-person meetings around beer pumps. So even my social media consumption is text-based with still photos to elaborate/illustrate. I spend an ungodly amount of time on subways so easy, one-handed use is a definite plus, as is a battery that can handle 18 hours of this kind of use.
I find it a little difficult to believe that the market for this is so small it can't support even ONE phone like an updated E6 with a slightly taller screen.
Ironically, the ONLY time in my life I was on top of Facebook enough to keep my friends happy was when I had a Blackberry 9900. Their Facebook app aligned everything in ONE easy-to-read column so I could engage and not become lost as a result of the inevitable interruptions, lol.
Personally I don't think we're asking for very much. Yet all indications are that we clearly are. Sad, really.
