    Looking at some of the videos of people trying to bend the top end model,it actually seems impressively rigid.

    The Banana Phone at £69 has piqued my interest. I'd consider it if I ever shunned the smartphone.

    Only thing is, it's still going to do Facebook...

    The 8 Sirocco seems a but steep price-wise considering the price you could get the original 8 for..

    I do like the look of the 8 Sirocco and 8110. Would have liked Nokia to offer an alternate OS however.

    Dear god please why does the Matrix not have an OS that can do whatsapp.

    If they could do a basic small handset that could do that with a physical nokia keypad then there may just be some hope for me to get the gf off her POS phone so she doesn't have to hog my for whatsapp calls
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    You'd think whatsapp would be more useful than facebook

    You'd think right? That 8110 would be ideal as it has wifi connectivity. Grrr!!!

    Wonder if you can write an app for the 8110 to make it a bluetooth device for skype calls or calls via a smartphone.
