Name My Phone!

OK, my new phone is on its way. I am checking the tracking obsessively. It's in Northampton! And it needs a name...

It is a Nokia 5800. Perhaps something Viking-y, given the nationality of the manufacturer? The little wrist strap and plectrum combo doesn't half look like a devil's tail, too. Something demonic? Do we know of any Finnish demons?

For reference, other named appliances in this household include my laptop (McGruder) desktop (Frankenputer) and Car (Kaligula).

Suggestions in the comments, please!

ETA: OOOOOOO it's in Tamworth!

Louhi has arrived

And she's fab! The coolest bit so far has been transferring all my contacts over via bluetooth in about 3 seconds. No fuss, no mess. And now that the two phones are synchable, I should be able to do that with MP3s too, so no need to swap memory cards about. Also, it'll do internet via WLAN as well as the mobile network, so when I am at home I can connect to the internet via my home broadband.

And she has a GPS and maps, so I can use her as a satnav!

I haven't had any issues with the touchscreen so far (have mostly been using the plectrum thing) and have found doing text messages really intuitive. The battery charged incredibly quickly. The speakers are really good, and the sound is clear. I think I'm going to need a sock for her, though, to keep her clean.

The only tiny problem I have had so far is that there's a sim memory full message that I can't get to go away, but I suspect that's just a matter of playing about a bit.

All in all, though, I am very pleased :D
