Nokia 5800 express to Hell

Dear Nokia,

You have created a phone that is not only one of it's kind, but also has put the evolution of mobile phones back years. The Nokia Express music is the orphan child of smart phones mutated with the unwanted bastard child of an mp3 player. If this was an attempt to rival an i-phone then, well, I just feel sorry for you.

I have about twelve reasons why your phone is so bad, and I am considering serlalising them for you. Today I will share the struggle of answering a phone call.

It happened yesterday, my sister rang me as I was sat in a beer garden. The phone shrieked and I stabbed at the express music's 'super smart' touch screen in an attempt to answer the call, but I guess that was asking a lot. I mean its not like that'd be straight forward. I dropped the call. I rang my sister back and to my suprise she didn't answer, despite there only being a time lapse of 30 seconds. I then rang back, a third attempt and lo! she answered. I apologised.

'Sorry, my phone wouldn't met me answer it' I said.
'God' she replied. 'I have the same problem, you don't have one of those Nokia Express music phones do you?' she joked.

But Nokia, I do. The joke was on me.

I don't want anything from you, you've done enough.

Tomorrow - the lost dialing wand.
