My daughter's desperate to get her hands on an SPV, and my Mrs. reckons it's cool - but she still wants a T68i anyway - it *looks* more ladylike (a real girl's phone, she says). A mate wants to chop her 7650 in for an SPV. For males only? Nah, no dice.

At the risk of turning this thread into a socialogical discussion, I'd say that the SPV's appeal would vary most from generation to generation rather than being just a simple gender-related thing. From a youth point-of-view, using my kids' youth club as an example, the lads are more impressed with the internet functions of the phone and the girls like the mp3/video player....which is a good indication of the sheer versatility and broad appeal of the SPV. All the SPV needs is more Nokia-style marketing; if anyone understands how to appeal to various market sectors (and succeed), it's Nokia...

hi guys. looks like i should stop posting under my boyfriends account then, and have my own sign in name and then there will be two females on this forum me and sarah lol.

i personally blame nokia for over-running this mobile industry first, with easy to use phones, working for Orange the first thing women say is i want a nokia they are the best and are ignorant to any type of persuasion to another make or model, or i want that one cus it looks nice (i can say these comments as im female lol) - for instance the facination with the A300 for goodness sakes.

the other main issue is maintainance - women and high maintainance 'toys' do not mix they cant be bothered and seek no pleasure from tweeking. at this point i would like to say that i am talking from the experience of 90% of female customers i serve.

the attempts to explain how easy it is to drag and drop to your spv even seems too much trouble - as long as its small enough when they go out they want it -- im sorry to say it too as a female but its true.

since October only two women have bought an spv me, as an employee and a lady who was a computer technician typically no other female has sniffed at this handset. shame really i could not be anymore overwhelmed with this handset and its become a ritual to get home first so i can check modaco, for new skins and wavs on my fav list. sounds obsessive but it is daily point of conversation with fellow male work collegues who also have the hanset of 'hey ive found a new skin website or look at my new cool skin, or listen to this '

it looks like its down to me and sarah to comment on behalf of females for this forum until we can convert more females, i daily try, but hold little hope :wink:

good job i dont mind predominant male company guys :wink:

It'd be difficult to cram in so many features and make the UI idiot-friendly.

Difficult, but possible, Ericssons have many features, but are easy to navigate (despite being slow).

The 7210/6610's are also presumably easy to navigate, but I've not had any experience - has anyone else?

All nokia's will have pretty much the same menu system, bar the Symbian powered ones.

As for posting stats, i've also been a little busier than normal this week, been keeping up but not had much chance to actually post much ;)

Hmmmm.... I love my SPV......basically because it's really getting me started on the whole "gadget" thing!
As for being a male dominated forum.......thats life I guess...... but it's THANKS to this forum that i feel able to explore my phone in a way that I wouldn't normally do.
One great addition Orange, would be a polished chrome back, that way I could also use it as a makeup mirror........ or for signalling when my car breaks down and I can't get it started!! :wink:
