  1. 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!

  2. yay. thanks for the iphone case.

    Good vid as normal!

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

  3. 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?

  4. 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!

  5. 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

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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? πŸ˜‰

  9. 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…

  10. 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! πŸ˜‰

  11. Good Point Mr Rad.

    Mr and 'The Lane' shall be having words πŸ˜‰

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

    πŸ™‚

  12. 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.

    A>

  13. 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…….'

  14. 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….

  15. 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….

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

  17. 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.

  18. 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. πŸ˜‰ thank you.

  19. 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.
