Hi guys,

I am sure you have seen the new devices that were announced at MWC.

Worst name of a phone ever must be the HTC Incredible S.
As a man you can’t buy this phone, because you would get in a fight all the time.
Imagine that you are called an incredible ass every time  someone sees the device.  Are you telling me I’m an incredible ass??
Not good.

As a female you wouldn’t want to be seen with this phone.
Every man would walk up to her and tell her she has an Incredible ass. While not looking at the phone, but of course at her backside.
Although it would be very easy selling this phone to females.
The salesman just has to say to the woman: would you like to have an incredible ass?  Almost all women I know would say yes immediately.

Can I start a rumor with you guys?
The new Samsung Galaxy S 2 has gone to a 4.3 inch screen.
Is this decision made by Samsung so that they can sell all the 4 inch screens to Apple for the Iphone 4HD???

Have a great weekend.

Regards,

Rethymno
