    James, she'd changed her hair – how were you to know it was the same person?!!

    Woot!

    Won an iphone case. Need an iphone now. 😀

  6. Abul October 15, 2008 at 9:23 am #

    The girl who had the SE W595 was Melinda Seckington who was at the DarkSide Launch with Ben Smith, that's why she had one on her! FYI!

  7. mrrad October 15, 2008 at 9:40 am #

    yay. thanks for the iphone case.

    Good vid as normal!

    Whatley since have you started letting Dan Lane say “Roll Credits”!

  8. DanLane October 15, 2008 at 10:18 am #

    I found the amount of groin references in this week's show unnecessarily high!

    BTW, anyone spot Wil Harris from ChannelFlip in the normob walkabout asking if we're looking for someone without an iphone?

  9. DanLane October 15, 2008 at 10:23 am #

    Did you notice she was also wearing the same clothes? I can't stand how some people can be so unimaginative as to wear the same outfit all the time!

  10. Ben Smith October 15, 2008 at 10:31 am #

    How could anything be better than the pens? 🙂

  11. Kip Hakes October 15, 2008 at 10:53 am #

    Seriously – the pens are amazing – soooo nice and weighty – have pride of place in my bag 🙂

    I think you need to go further back for your old handsets! How about the NEC P3 or even a Nokia Mobira?

  13. worldofnokia October 15, 2008 at 11:58 am #

    good show guys, but spotted a BIG typo. On the black screen before you show the W595 on 3 you called it (in text) the Sony Ericssonn W959

    Oops :p

  14. smstextnews October 15, 2008 at 12:03 pm #

    Aye I put the correction on the vimeo page earlier Daniel… Although I'd be interested to see a W959 from Sony!

  15. jamescoops October 15, 2008 at 2:09 pm #

    ha – interesting to see the lady slagging off her iphone – worrying amount of dodgy samsungs around at FOWA

  16. EricE51 October 15, 2008 at 2:45 pm #

    hah! I'd like the T610. I wont toss at any random boy either. Regarding the Americans, dont you have SIM kiosks at the Airport? Just wondering.

  17. David Carrington October 15, 2008 at 4:22 pm #

    Exclusives, James' infectious happiness, and prizes for doing practically nothing. The editting was also really nice, especially the flashbacks to past shows. By far, very far, the best show you guys have made to date.

    More light-hearted videos like this please!

    Unfortunately, I have no iphone to go in a case – have you got 6 of those to give away next week? 😉

  18. Anthony October 15, 2008 at 6:55 pm #

    I've only watched the first 3 minutes and I'm laughing my socks off. Whatley's, “It's my job man!” cracked me up. That, and how scared some of the folk look. Like deer in headlights…

  19. Anthony October 16, 2008 at 12:49 am #

    To be fair to you MIR guys, even someone (who I won’t name and shame!) at 3mobilebuzz called it the w959 in an email re-inviting me to the launch!

    Big oops! 😉

  20. Anthony October 16, 2008 at 1:02 am #

    Ben being the only sober one amongst us… I still have no idea how I made it home! 😀

  21. James Whatley October 16, 2008 at 4:59 am #

    I didn't notice *that –

    *discovers another reason to go back and watch the show AGAIN.

    😀

  22. DanLane October 16, 2008 at 5:03 am #

    “James' infectious happiness” – That's not what we call it! 😉

    Thanks for the kind words!

  23. James Whatley October 16, 2008 at 5:32 am #

    Good Point Mr Rad.

    Mr and 'The Lane' shall be having words 😉

    (and the cheeky beggar snuck it in there quick so I didn't get a chance to say it – git!)

    🙂

  24. James Whatley October 16, 2008 at 5:39 am #

    Glad you enjoyed it dude – as Dan said, thanks for the kind words. You're right, Ewan excelled himself in the edit this week… Really good job.

  25. James Whatley October 16, 2008 at 5:40 am #

    “I threw it at a boy….”

    Best Impression. EVER.

    😀

  26. DanLane October 16, 2008 at 5:51 am #

    Feel free to use either of my catchphrases 😛

  27. James Whatley October 16, 2008 at 6:06 am #

    I scare people?!

    🙁

  28. ocifant October 16, 2008 at 10:09 am #

    Yay! I won stuff!! Many thanks guys – I'm on holiday deep in 'no-signal' territory at the moment – an experience I may just have to write about – so I'll obviously have some catching up to do when I get back.

    How anyone manages to stay sober with free champagne, I don't know…

  30. Abul October 17, 2008 at 5:19 am #

    Only normobs.

  31. jamesbody October 17, 2008 at 6:39 am #

    Look on the positive side – wearing the same outfit means that you do not have to agonize what to wear in the morning…..

    'Shall I wear my black combat trousers today, or perhaps my black combat tousers…….'

  32. DanLane October 17, 2008 at 6:42 am #

    This is exactly my reasoning!…. mornings take up so much less time now!

  33. jamesbody October 17, 2008 at 6:43 am #

    What do you expect people to do when a highly excited and unshaven individual lurches towards them with a very inquisitorial manner?

    I think that normal reaction is 'Flight or fight' – so James is lucky not to have received the odd defensive poke!

    Now – if he was cleanly shaven, smartly dressed (wearing a pink shirt) then the reactio might be very different….

  34. jamesbody October 17, 2008 at 6:49 am #

    Now – I have a handset (still working last time I checked) – that you could feature.

    You would have to send the MIR Transit van a coupe of blokes to pick it up though….

  35. jamesbody October 17, 2008 at 6:51 am #

    And do not forget the Symbian party on Tuesday evening – all registered attedees to the show get an invitation!

  36. Richard Hyndman October 17, 2008 at 12:20 pm #

    Hi Guys, good show, not quite up to the usual levels of detail for me, maybe more on the W595 and a bit more on FOWA would have been nice. Looking forward to next weeks, Rich

    Does the 6230 count as ‘old’ yet? Hands down the best mobile phone this decade, I think I ended up owning a total of 3, after I’d sell one I’d end up buying it again later.

  39. Ricky Chotai October 17, 2008 at 5:32 pm #

    I think James should have to use the old phones for a few days and the 3310 is a classic

  40. edgar1013 October 17, 2008 at 11:39 pm #

    oh woaw i won the flip!
    this is the best thing that's happened to me since losing my virginity!
    HAAAAA i'm psyched! thanks guys!
    another great show. normob awesome as usual. James get yourself a laser gun and zap all those iphone users!
    Ben i emailed you my addie. 😉 thank you.

    Please edit out the crotch shots. Both visual and aural.

    nice little review on the nokia 6650. it is being released on at&t nov. 4. i am thinking of renewing my contract with it. at 70 dollars after rebate, it is the best bang for the buck at&t has to offer.
    they are also releasing the touch pro at $300, the w760 for $130 and the razr v9x for $200
    the 6650 is a no brainer.
