My analogue iPhone

An amazing year is just to come to an end. Time to buy a new analogue handheld for my brain backup. It has even better features than the overrated iPhone: sure you can write down all your telephone numbers from old and new friends, but this pocket palm has more space for stickers, an original Blu double page and an information-self-destruction-super-pencil. Rather spend your money on this one on christmas!
