aren't they char-min-guuu? seriously mobile handsets are overrated. just when I think I've found one that I like, they come up with a better one. And Softbank makes you pay for 2 years or so for something that'll be obsolete soon too! ;(

Heck, I've had the same mobile phone for 6 years. Still works fine!

Isn't the display screen small comparing to new ones? I haven't changed mine for two years but I'm curious about new features.

I agree with you Sarge. I've had mine for about 4 years now and no problems whatsoever. I can't see why you would really want to change your phone after such a short time. And anyway, after all the points I've piled up, when it does come time to buy a new one, I'll be able to get it for free.

popular comedians

These two words should not be used together in Japan because rarely are entertainers both.

I read somewhere that these chaps are really pushing back the frontiers of comedy. Some of them shout, while others gently slap each other on the back of the head while a sound effect of a very loud slap sound goes off.

I understand that if we're really lucky, we can get to watch some of them eat food soon.

I for one can't wait. I wonder if the food will be either oishii or umai?

What makes them obsolete? Are you no longer able to make and receive calls? I thought that's what telephone were for? The rest is just nonsense.
