It’s a given that any kind of person can find a handset that’s exactly what they’re looking for. Some might even say that in this day and age your mobile defines your personality. It’s the phone that makes the man. It won’t always fit your bank balance and maybe the bank manager would break out into hysterical laughter if he knew you wanted to drain your bank account for a phone, but that handset, that perfect mobile phone that culminates every aspect of every feature you’ve ever wanted does exist and why shouldn’t you have it? So irrespective of what you can afford, based on specific kinds of personalities, here’s a list of phones that would be exactly what you should have, if you don’t have them already.
It’s about Power, about being a Man- The Ultimate Man’s Phone
Vertu Ascent Ti Damascus Steel
When you’ve got power and want to make sure everyone know this, you’ve got to be packing some serious arsenal in your pocket. I’m talking about your phone you pervs. Although whatever your corrupted minds are thinking is true as well. Simply getting out of a Rolls Royce Maybach in an Armani suit and flashing a Bulgari watch isn’t enough. The addition of Vertu’s Ascent Ti Damascus Steel will however add just that little extra ‘ziiiing’ to complete the ensemble. This Vertu isn’t made; it’s forged, from Damascus Steel, which is the next best thing to titanium. The same material was used to make a warrior's sword from almost all eras of civilization. I don’t think it gets any manlier than that.
The Damascus Steel combines Vertu’s sexy, showy appeal with a hardcore casing that could withstand a bullet. It oozes power and the price tag pretty much declares it. Vertu users are also privy to the exclusive Concierge service available 24/7 that can get you almost anything you want at anytime. The price tag of this phone also includes access to Vertu Fortress which is a wireless synchronization service that backs up all of your important data in an extremely secure location. So owning this phone is right up there with grabbing your crotch in public or sleeping with your secretary while running a country.
Throw me in the woods and my Boy Scout training kicks in – The Outdoorsy
Sonim’s Land Rover S1
For the rugged outdoors type of individual, you need a phone that you can of course take with you wherever you may roam. In this case I’m recommending the Land Rover branded S1 from rugged phone maker Sonim. You can’t go wrong with a Land Rover if your whole idea is to traverse the great outdoors. This handset can stay underwater up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes; works in extreme temperatures so if you’re dunning in the Rajasthan desert or skiing in the snow capped mountains of the Himalayas this baby isn’t going to quit on you. It even has GPS tracking for those of us guys who hate asking for directions. Sonim even offers a 3-Year unconditional guarantee.
Other features include a torch, an FM radio and even a 2MP camera and support for external memory. Bluetooth, EDGE and USB are the modes of connectivity. Short of a solar panel charger this handset has all else you need to survive in the wild and with an 1850mAH battery we’re talking a serious amount of talk time. Hell it even looks as rugged as the car. If there’s one thing I’d want to be stuck with in the wilderness, the S1 would be at the top of my list. Indiana Jones never did too well with a woman at his back, but you know this baby would have served him well.
I write a lot because I have an opinion about everything – The Blogger
Nokia N97 Mini
Well we all have a right to our opinion but some of us tend to make a business out of it. For those constantly talking about something or the other and posting it all over the net, a phone with all kinds of connectivity and a comfortable to use Keypad is just what the Blogger ordered. So for the frequent blogger/Social Networker Nokia’s N97 Mini is perfect. The slick keypad is very comfy to use for prolonged typing so you can tap tap tap away for hours sharing your wild ideas and thoughts with the rest of net-dom. From Wi-Fi to 3G, Bluetooth and of course USB, you’re well covered. Nokia’s browser is also well designed enough to make uploading your stories quite easy.
This S60 touchscreen edition OS comes with social networking apps and a built in GPS module. The 5MP camera supports geo-tagging so you can upload images and talk about places or things you‘ve seen as well. I know a picture is worth a thousand words but some times you just don’t get that. This handset is not for those with an unobtrusive opinion to share.
