Some of you may have bought the Sony Xperia mobile phone, which has had rave reviews. I was able to get one free when I am renewed my mobile phone package.
It claims the best water resistance of any smartphone, and took out newspaper advertising to that effect earlier this year.
Don't believe it. Whilst placing son number two on the toilet on a blearry eyed morning, with the phone in the breast pocket of my pyjamas, the inevitable happened. Needless to say despite immediate retrieval, the phone has never worked since.
I have now returned to my old Blackberry.
When it comes to technology, from mobile phone salesman to those offering new IT systems for the NHS I recommend one, very simple line. Don't Believe The Hype.
