I would rather have a Nokia 3210 then an iPhone  Cheesy, Android all the way for me.

The new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C went on sale Friday morning. And Apple fanatics flocked to Apple Stores around the world to be among the first to purchase the two new handsets. For some, it's like Christmas, the last day of school and their birthday rolled into one.
Norman Hicks, who was the first customer at the front of the line at the Apple Store in Covent Garden, London, poses for photographers with two boxed iPhone 5S handsets.

I have got to ask why do thay have to be the first to get a bloody mobile phone?   Huh

Brian Ceballo emerges from the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue as the first to purchase the new iPhone 5S on Friday in New York. Ceballo and a friend waited for 15 days in line outside the store to be the first to buy the phone.

My Bold, Bloody Hel why thay must be nuts.  Shocked

I have one of those old phones with buttons. It's a cheap tesco £15 samsung thing.. truly indestructible but as featureless as a block of ice.
Never had a smartphone so I'd like one at some point as there is a lot of stuff I could do with a small programmable device like that.

According to here it went on sale today.
But another report I read, can't remember where now, indicated that in some areas there was a lack of interest in Apple's latest con phone Cheesy

This was joked about on another thread but it looks like others are wondering too.

The trouble is that after the NSA scandal where the companies involved with passing on security data were gagged by the American government, even if Apple deny uploading fingerprint data, is anyone going to believe them ?

How quaint.
A popular method of communication in the 19th and 20th century i'm told.  I believe my droid may have an app for that,  Smiley

Re: new iPhone Goes on Sale

@'DaveyH' - Does your droid have apps to allow your phone to go two weeks between battery charges, be operated with gloves on in winter, not smash when accidentally dropped, or the capability to do accurate texting or number dialing while not looking at the screen ?
