So, this brought about another option — that of attaching a speaker to my phone. Only problem I found with most is that they would take their power from the iPhone and the sound was pretty poor, if reviews are to be believed.

Featuring a touch-sensitive screen, just like the iPhone, Nokia wisely waited a good while to release its offering, and it has paid off, with a capable device that just falls short of knocking Apple's creation off the top perch. Tipping the scales at grams, the feels comfortable in the hand - and in the pocket - and looks the part with its stylish yet understated black with red highlight colour scheme. The real star here, though, is the 3. And thanks to an accelerometer, the can work out whether you're holding the phone vertically or horizontally, and will adjust the display accordingly - although on a couple of occasions after pressing the menu button it had trouble deciding which way to orientate the screen.
