Laura, Canterbury Basic text and chat user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Classy to look at; nice screen; easy to navigate menu; good mobile internet; battery life is much better than my old Nokia (although I suppose this could depleat rapidly when using the walkman element, but I'm yet to do that!)
Bad points:
Camera quality is poor, despite 3.2MP it is very difficult to take a steady shot.
