Even Noel Gallagher's Mobile Phone is Stuck in the Mid 1990s

By Gary Cutlack on at

According to the ever-quotable Noel Gallagher, iPhones are for "cockneys" and "***s" and he's much happier pulling a battered old Nokia out of the back of his expensive jeans.

The quotes, which come from an interview Noel did with the Mirror, have been edited by the reporter, so we're not sure if by "****s" Noel means something mildly inoffensive like "arses" or if he's being really rude and saying something several measures stronger.

The full Galagher diatribe against iPhone went as follows: "I just want a basic 1994 Nokia mobile. I can keep it in my back pocket and just do the basics with it -- phone and text. What would I need a camera on it for? iPhones are for Cockneys and ****s. And they are far too big."

He should form a super-group with the equally miserable Pete Townshend. [Mirror via Cnet]
