If you scroll back through this evening’s tweets, you will see a suggestion regarding something called the Santakini. It may well happen.

That said, I may choose to interact while on the train and then the railbus, while batteries last.

Preparing to leave the city and return to the Mountains. If you tweeted something important at me, try again tomorrow.

The reason I am not tweeting much right now is that I’m at an interesting party with interesting people and you’re not.

Anyway, if that’s Telstra’s message today, then I assume that the Microsoft Lumia 830 is what I’ll have my hands on this evening.

4GX speeds on a phone are all well and good, @Telstra, but they’re useless if you don’t allow more data on a plan before money-haemorrhage.
