Now this is just getting silly!

Really, who needs an armband for their phone? It's like the ipods which have armbands available... and at 25 bucks US, it's a little on the steep side for something which just looks tacky.

I think it is more for people who does not like to carry their phone in their pockets or bags. Especially while exercising. But then, if the person is exercising, who has the time to pick up a phone call unless it is an emergency. Nokia must has a valid reason to promote such accessories for mobile phone users. Definitely not for me though..

Aren't there some phones that are mp3 players now too? perhaps they are marketing these phone arm bands so people can use the music capabilites while jogging or exercising.

Armbands? That's insane.. I can't see that being useful in any situation. It looks so foolish..

How utterly bizarre. I can't imagine it being useful, but probably someone somewhere will think it the coolest thing ever.

Cool

How long before they're implanting the phones inside our heads, really? I don't know about you guys, but I prefer my phone in my bag, instead of as an accessory to my body!

I CAN see it for joggers.. probably a lot safer, in all honesty, than clipping it to a belt at your waist. Would I own one? Probably not... I don't jog and, if I did, I think it would be annoying to strap onto a sweaty old body part. Ewwww.

I wouldn't use it myself. But I agree with the above, it would be good for exercising. I know that when I'm out walking in the evening, I always have my cell phone with me. So if there are people that like to run/jog then it would be good for emergencies and what not.

What will they come up with next? I wont see myself sporting an arm band anytime soon but as a previous poster mentioned as soon as a celeb start wearing one they will latest fashion accessory and they will charge you 2 times as much as they charge now. lol.
