[access-uk] Re: I-phone too long winded

Hi Tris

I agree with your sentiments, but the only thing is that there is now
beginning to be a niche market opening up where people still want button
phones, but don't have any choice because they are either not available any
more, or they have to go to the high-end touch-screen type.  So someone
needs to step into the ring and fill the gap in the middle where the likes
of myself and others still want and need button handsets with speech.


Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

It is almost impossible to get those very high end Nokia button phones like
the N86 new that have wi-fi etc.  What is left are supplies of C5s from
RNIB, Expansys etc.  Mobile phone providerswill do what most people want
which are either really cheap feature phones that don't take TALKS et al or
high end touchscreen based smart phones like the iPhone or Android.

Hi Eleanor

Can't speak at all for S and S as the last I heard, Glenn couldn't get them
for love nor money.

As for C5, you may well be right about RNIB selling them, but let's be
honest and say it won't be forever! And no,  it doesn't have WiFi.


Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

Well just a minute Jackie, did you mention in previous e-mail perhaps that
C5 does not have wi-fi.  In addition C5 is available SIM Free and unlocked
from RNIB and I thought but could of course be wrong that it is possible to
get N86 from Sight & Sound but generally in combination with KNFB Reader.
