Perhaps why the motofone failed
Perhaps why the famous F3 Motofone failed: you can hardly see it in the dark! I was staying with a family in Madekeri, and they had one of these super affordable phones... They did not like the phone. Some reasons include the fact that "it bends" when you walk, if you keep it in your pocket--and that the text is very difficult to read. It also seemed rather difficult to use. Dixit was trying to change the language, and I saw him struggle with it for 20 minutes, to no avail. Interesting!
