For some reason or another, I’m emotionally attached to my Nokia 7250, which I’ve had since the summer of 2003. I just absolutely love it.
Although its geeky features are extremely limited, I absolutely love it’s physical design, I love the fact that it’s dubbed “Il-Mamlakah”, and I love how I can fit it into my wallet.
Alas though, the battery, which has been replaced several times in the past 3 years, is starting to refuse to remain in place, paper slips slipped under its shaky covers or otherwise. The alarm clock occassionally forgets to wake me up. I get the “black” screen-of-death every too often, and every once in a while, all signs of life appear to freeze its little interface only to be shaken back into reality by taking out the battery.
It really absolutely breaks my heart.
And naturally, most of the phones on the market today are not my cup of tea. They’re too bulky and too jam-packed with features that are absolutely unneccessary to me. I don’t like this whole deal of turning the phone into every single gadget possible- I mean, why? Ok, don’t tell me why, I know why, but whatever, I like big bags and my big bags fit a lot of stuff so I don’t want a bulky phone.
If they still manufactured Nokia 7250s, I’m totally willing to buy another one. But since they don’t, the only phone on my mind is another cute, ungeeky phone that derived a “Roba, why the hell do you have to be artsy fartsy? That phone sucks, get something with features!”
Oh, well, features or not, how does one expect me to resist the prettiness of this? I even blogged about it a while ago.
And now it’s mine ;)
