Long time no see...

Oh dear. This blog is looking a little unloved, isn't it?

A blog about mobile phones that barely mentions that... what's it called... iPhone is it? Something like that.

Just look at it! Excitement about forthcoming Nokia handsets. Who remembers that feeling? Just a couple of centimetres down this page, you will find an excited preview of the Nokia N97. It wasn't exactly the game changer we were anticipating, and that's putting it mildly.

Oh, how the world has changed. Walled gardens and apples (how biblical), androids and lawsuits. HTCs and Sammys and jailbreaking. Oh for the days of pixelated snakes munching cubes (were they birds eggs? guess so).

I've always had a bit of a thing for ludicrous luxury handsets, and it has been the most ludicrous of the lot that has stirred this blog back into life. Ladies and gentlemen, I present the TAG Heuer Link.

At almost €5000 it ain't cheap, and that's just the starting price.

But additional extras include calfskin, alligator or lizard hide backing. Or perhaps you would like some embedded diamonds?

It's somehow reassuring to know that while London is burning, the economic markets are in crisis and over 2 million people in Britain are unemployed, there are still people out there who can afford to splash the cash on something that will be obsolete in 2 years whatever happens.

It's good to be back!
