Re: Wow - what an article

If I could get a faster, touchscreen 9700 the size of an S3 or Note, I'd be thrilled. I once set an older user up with a leftover 7230, and I was so jealous of the keyboard.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who's embarrassed. 'You're constantly watching people do all these things on their phones and all I have going for me is my family group BBM chats' sums it up for me.
