Ive just read the announcement of the forthcoming Nokia 6260 slide. I am an adult with a serious job for which a mobile phone is an essential tool. I dont buy a phone as a toy, I dont want every available new feature if it means I have to compromise on size and user friendliness. Touch screen phones are fun and futuristic but dont work as well as buttons.

The best feature of a slide phone is that whatever you are doing with it, by simply sliding shut the phone it will revert to the menu screen and lock itself. Lately I have been looking for a new slider phone and have noticed that alot of them no longer have this feature.

If the Nokia 6260 does not have this feature, it will be a huge mistake.
