I love mobile-review.com
Badly translated mobile phone reviews, done in painstaking detail. They use russian coins as indications of phone size - how big is a 10 rubels coin? And various other bits of Moscow ephemera appear.

"Now you can obtain only one colour solution – that is black. And then at least one operator version in another colour will appear which is typical of Sony Ericsson. The body plastic is dull-black, it is like coal and resembles graphite. No lacquer glow, the body is not easy to soil. That is the first time the company uses various colours for asymmetrical areas (different colours for various buttons). The central part of the phone features an orange Walkman button, which attracts our attention. A silvery Activity Menu button is to the right. And a-la metallic navi button divides the composition in the center. Such colour scheme makes a new youth phone style. We could call this a brave experiment, but then experience with Sony Ericsson K700 comes to mind, that model was both successful in business society and among youth audience despite decent design. And here the company stakes on this experience. The back of the phone also features two orange insertions, a Walkman logo, a self-portrait mirror is painted in orange. Nevertheless it acts perfectly, however it is not demanded much. But its colour is an integral design element."
