Yes... Much of the exchange in this thread is pure bollocks in my opinion
and I don't know why I even spend the time commenting...You notice it gets
really cerebral and intellectual when the posters run out of arguments and
resort to insults, swearing and Adolf.
A punter is someone who places bets, e.g. on horses or football, but is
often used more generally for someone trying his luck at something, or even
for someone participating at an event, though this is more humorous.
Try putting the word into Google.
I have a wonderful Nokia phone which fits into my intelligent integrated car
kit in my equally wonderful Merc.
I have used Motorola phones (oops, not on distribution list) and found them
a pig to use (lousy menus) even if the quality, especially of the sound, is
quite good. I commend Motorola for being the first producer of a decent
phone that worked in North America as well as in the rest of the GSM world.
Nokia's effort was not great. I know several people in Britain who have Ms
and in every case only because they travel to North America. However, now
that Nokia has good NA-compatible phones with auto-switching M will lose out
in that market.
I still have a Motorola as a spare, which I am using now while waiting for
my Nokia replacement, which I managed to lose on my recent trip abroad...
Recent stats show that at above 35%, Nokia is still the Number 1 mobile
phone handset supplier in the world.
Blah blah blah...
NB: To reply directly replace "nospam" with "schmetterling"
