Highly ironically, considering my involvement with Moblog, i won this phone in a competition on Facebook which encourages people to send in images that in some way truly represent their city. A lot like the cityclickers competition we ran a while ago.
I submitted a number of images: a very english looking man strolling past a pub with the, as only British pubs can boast, amusing name "The Bunghole", amongst others.
It was an image of a group of people crowded around a television in a Dixons store on the 7th july 2005 that won, as many of you reading might know i started the popular (and some would even say populist) protest site http://werenotafraid.com
as a response to the attacks on londons transport system that day.
Having written all the above, by way of exposition, whilst on a bus on my way to Liverpool street, i suddenly realise i got carried away and havent actually said what i started this post to say: a Kodak phone? YAY!
There is something exceedingly pleasing about having a handset whose imaging functions are powered by a company who live in my sentimental memory as the manufacturers of the cameras of my adolescence, my parents cameras. :)
Im looking forward to trying it out, although this handset is not currently available in the UK. That said, if theyre running this competition it follows that it soon will be.
