    i found this story a couple of days ago but didn't bother to post it as i cannot find any proposed images of the phone (not that we really need them!)

    the phone companies website just has a mailing list to be added to for when they release more news or the phone itself.

    the phone is a great idea for confirmed trekkies or teenagers, but to be honest i don't think i'd personally want one. i think i'd die on the spot of shame if it went off with a chirp and i flipped it out in company and said :

    "Kirk here!"

    i once had a girlfriend that was a confirmed trekkie, she owned one of these. i used to sit and watch Babylon 5 with her each week, giving up our nights out. amazing times, to actually be able to sit down with a female of the species, watching your favourite scifi programming and not have her gabbing in your ear constantly :)

    Only if you don't work with a bunch of other geeks. ;) I spend all day with a bunch of other guys & gals in our IT team that all have some quirky traits. Me flipping out a communicator in a meeting wouldn't even raise an eyebrow.


    All I'll say on the subject is that my wife is a Lifetime fan. But she indulges me by giving up the TV every Friday night. :)
