(keitai-l) Re: Nokia warns of tough times ahead

I have a nice slim P504i, openable with just  a flick of the wrist - 
one of the best keitai ever made. The latest Japenese clamshells seem a 
pretty clunky lot - they close with the sound of on old Yugo.  And if 
it is clams they are modeled after, it is the sumo-wrestlers end of the 
clam population...

But is there really on option for protecting a super high quality 
screen that has to take the rough and tumble of a kids pocket? And 
given all the features (at least one Japanese keitai now has a TV 
RECORDER in it) are we going to see an end to thick keitai anytime 
soon?

Now - natch! - you poor folks back in blighty don't have phones with 
any halfway decent features, so probably it isn't an issue yet...

But is there really an serious alternative for a semi-rugged (i.e 
kidproof) high quality, full featured, power guzzlin' behemoth than a 
clam shell?
