South Shields Market

“Can you talk to people on it?”

I caught these gentlemen negotiating over the price of a mobile phone on South Shields Market (they call them cell phones in America).

I can imagine the conversation

” Yeah mate, it’s got a 2 Megapixel built in camera, takes up to a I Gb memory card, shoot video too if you like, 48 built in polyphonic ring tones, plays MP3s as well, 5 built in java games and you can download more, it connects to the mobile internet WAP thingy as well, pretty cool huh? Oh, it’s Bluetooth, and you get 600 free texts with it as well!”

  1. That’s a question I’ve been asking my son lately. He has declared his current phone “crap” because it doesn’t have enough giggawhizza phizzgig features…and I said “but can you talk on it?”.

    That stopped him in his tracks til I got the “oooooooooooooh, Mum…..” Seems I’m just not sufficiently “into” phones.

    Until then I never realised that phones were something you can be “into” !
