Introducing the mobile phone...

The Sharp 770SH

Sleek and sexy but is it up to the job? Launched in the UK earlier this month there's little track record on this phone. The manufacturer Sharp have a good reputation for the performance of their electrical products and are known for holding back their new releases until properly tested. Will there be any gremlins?

Introducing the phone user...

Graham Archbold

A complete novice when it comes to technology I really have a lot to learn but anything I do pick up I'm sure to record here.

I previously owned a Sony Ericsson K300 but as I've now learned, their little joysticks have a nasty tendancy to go sticky and stop responding. After that experience I wasn't gong to make the same mistake again - going for a middle of the road phone based on my pay-as-you-go budget. Instead I wanted sleek and sexy with buttons that wouldn't let me down.

Given that Motorola have reinvented the term 'svelte' and applied it to their handsets, something like a V3x appeared to be the natural choice. That wasn't to be however: I laid eyes on the Sharp 770SH in a Vodaphone store. A contest for my heart and my thumbs began.
