Nokia never asked me!!
Ive a box here with 20 or so different phones in it.
None of which meet MY needs.
Recently before Nokia sold itself to the devil, I tried to make contact with Nokia to as if they would make a phone for my needs, the money is here, and in my view there are thousands of folk world wide who would buy what i want too.
What that is ill come to later,
they were virtually impossible to get through to , and didnt even reply to a simple email, when i eventually found an address to write to.
The only phone I can use for the simplest of tasks is their Communicator 9210i.
Because its has the key spacing to suit my hands for texting. No other phone has.
its a folder ie a side acting flip phone with a protected main screen, decent speaker when open on outdoor, so I can hear it when the tractor is running
Im old, with big hands, tired eyes, and partly deaf,
i work in a dirty industrial noisy and frequently wet enviroment.
the phone will live in a pocket with other harware, nuts and bolts etc.
So what would I want in aphone?
a folder, to protect it when not in use.
a kebboard like the 9210i
a screen big like the E61
a battery of 3000mah so it will last at least 2/4 weeks
a clear and loud speaker
solid METAL construction,
Reasonaby waterproof and repairable.
And screwed together , no plastc clips, proper o ring type seals on all joints etc.
Size/ about the same as a HP Jordana ie 3in wide abot 4in long and it can be up to 1in thick.
weight doesnt matter, a it must be on a strong lanyard .
The sonim is agood phone but I cant use it, keys too small.
they dont answer the phone on their uk no either.
Perhaps I should get someone in China to make it for me and ill sell it and make a fortune!!
Folk like us dont ponse around in offices with an iphone as a personal ego prop.
It wouldnt last 5 mins in my life, and I wouldnt have one if it were free.
If im concentrating on driving or plowing or whatever I dont need email on the go, or news feed or anything like that. For cthose needs i like to sit down infront of my nice IBM thinkpad with a decent screen and top quality keyboard to do emails ,letters etc.
