Robert is SoMobile’s Content Editor. Aside from writing about mobile phones, he is also passionate about cinema, rambling about it on several websites. His passion for technology is well-concealed by the fact that – as a result of drowning his HTC Desire – he’s currently using a generic Nokia phone sporting a 1.3MP camera, a colour screen and a perplexing game called Luxor Quest. Aside from being reckless with his smartphone, he’s also a talented writer and pedantic editor.
