Free Phones for Me?

There's an Australian competition running at the moment with the chance to become a Nokia phone reviewer for a year. You get 6 Nokia phones to review for a website - and you get to keep the phones after each review.

They want a "creative and original" review of your current phone in 50 words or less - to determine who should win.

I figured I might as well give it a shot - but 50 words is so small. If I were to review a phone, it'd take a lot more words than 50. So I've decided to go for more of a brief summary of my current phone - the Nokia 6320. The site that's running the competition seems more teen-based - so I've tried to make my reviews suited to that audience.

I've got four initial drafts - but I can't decide which one I want to use:


The Nokia 6230 will suit your lifestyle. The MP3 player provides you with unique ringtones, downloadable Java Games and FM Radio provide entertainment and it has the elegant good looks, calendar & wallet of a professional business phone. The integrated camera just tops it all off - my favourite toy!


The Nokia 6230
MP3 Ringtones? Check!
Video Player and Recorder? Action - I mean, Check!
Stylish Good Looks? Chic!
Bluetooth connectivity? Roger that!
Java Games? Checkmate.
Could you possibly need more? I still haven't!


My Nokia 6230 made a great fishing trip, although I don't know if my Jaws Theme ringtone helped. The Java Games entertained when the fish weren't biting, but when I finally caught one - the integrated camera proved that it was this big! Guess what I've set as my wallpaper?


Whats the mark of a good phone?
It looks like a classy business phone - yet its got an MP3 player and integrated camera to keep me entertained.
It has more features than any phone I've had before - yet its easy enough for my mother to use.
Its my Nokia 6230.

i really like the second and the third one.

Thanks for the input! I think I may use the second one - as they seem to be after something a little creative.

I think I might get my girlfriend to send in the third one - so I've changed it a bit for a female:

I took my boyfriend shopping yesterday, luckily I had my Nokia 6230! The Games and MP3 player kept him occupied while I tried on clothes. He looked mortified when I took him through the underwear section, I just had to snap a photo. Guess what I've set as my wallpaper?
