Debbie was going to put a post on today but, she's busy... twittering... hopelessly hooked!
Yesterday that once in eighteen months experience came round, mobile phone upgrade time! We'd known for some time that we were going for the Nokia E71 so didn't even bother looking at anything else. The reason we went for this phone was:
Querty keyboard (Faster Twittering)
Wi-Fi (Mobile signal is intermittent down stairs in this thick walled old house)
Large wide screen (Eyesight's not what it used to be)
Camera (Not the best but it does have autofocus and macro)
GPS (We're not avers to getting lost now and again)
Price (At least £8 a month cheaper than anything else with this spec)
We're both delighted with the new phones, the buttons are tiny but surprisingly easy to use, the super fast wi-fi even reaches upstairs and the wide screen is great.
It's the first time ever I've not been advised to 'put that chuffin phone down' because Debbie's been too busy on hers! All the required stuff has been installed on both phones, Opera Mini, Shozu, Gmail, Google Maps etc and Debbie is quickly getting to grips with everything really quickly, especially Twitter!
Update on the ice skating: We've been again this morning, lasted half an hour again but did many more laps than the first time. The pain wearing the new skates is still a little overpowering at the moment, hopefully that will subside in a few weeks and we can concentrate on the skating rather than our throbbing feet.
Update on the weather: It looked like a beautiful day when we set of to the ice rink but the lovely sunshine had been replaced by heavy sleet when we came out, forcing a mad dash back to the car!
