The single best mobile phone review EVER printed

Mobile phones

samsung-e900-brooker.gifSorry Samsung, it’s your E900 that’s getting a right royal kicking from Guardian columnist Charlie Brooker in a piece titled ‘My new mobile is lumbered with a bewildering array of unnecessary features aimed at idiots’. That kinda gives you the general flavour.

“The whole thing is the visual equivalent of a moronic clip-art jumble sale poster designed in the dark by a myopic divorcee experiencing a freak biorhythmic high,” he says, before going on to suggest that “the government is offloading these twittering handheld crapstones on to as many people as possible in a bid to whip us all into a state of perpetual, simmering anger in readiness for some kind of bare-knuckle street war.”

Oof! Given Charlie’s previous explanation of why he hates Macs, if the Guardian has any sense, it’ll clear four pages for his iPhone review later this year…
