And we’re hitting spurious territory now: The default ringtone. Seriously – it leaked last night.
The odd, but melodic trill, composed by Roger Bourland, sounds vaguely like tubular bells.
It’s okay to these discerning ears, not as iconic as the Nokia 5110’s (the Trigger Happy TV one), and certainly not easy-going – it’s shrill and insistent, which is maybe what a ringtone should sound like.
Make up your own mind, and let us know which are your favourite ringtones from the annals of mobile phone history. Ahh The Sagem MW 3040’s “blip blip 2” will always stay with me. Blip blip…blip…blip. The memories. The harrowing harrowing memories.
