Motorola Z8 Doesn’t Have A SIM Slot?

James Whatley, of Whatley on Wednesdays fame, shared this video with me over IM this morning, and I thought it was rather interesting. The video is of Justin, who apparently is one of the ‘newer’ recruits over at Mippin, which we’ve covered here before. Justin’s playing with a new Motorola Z8, and having a beast of a time actually figuring out where to insert his SIM card.

I’ve heard reports of people having trouble using certain handsets, but not being able to find the SIM slot is definitely not a good starting point. When was the last time you handed your phone over to a ‘normob’ (no offense, Justin) and asked them to do something rather simple? My favorite is when people handle my N95 and can’t for the life of them figure out where in the world the keys are (you just slide up). I kid you not, it happens on a regular basis.
