Hi everybody!

I am new to this site, and I am thrilled to be here now. I am a huge supporter of Mr Stephen Fry's work and his persona is just so wonderful.

As always, Fry is a bit of a gadget fan. As perhaps most of us in here And I have understood that he is a very official Apple fan. But I have seen him on a picture and on "Kingdom - behind the scenes", with another kind of phone with a visible antenna. I just wonder if anyone know what phone that is?

And I have understood that Fry is uploading some videos on YouTube from his current trip in Africa and around the world. Where is it? I cannot find it....... Please help!

Cheers all!

I too was watching Kingdom behind the scenes and wondered what phone that was, I bet he hasn't got it anymore though, it was two years ago, and he seems utterly devoted to his iphone now

You might want to check out Stephen's first blog entry Devices and Desires where he writes at length about all the phones he owns and / or tested. Maybe the Kingdome phone is amongst those.

for your replies and a very informative link. A really good read. Just a bit sad that it is so old now.......
Anyway, I think I have figured out what phone he had in "Kingdom - behind the scenes" and sometimes pictured with. A "Palm Treo" phone of some sort.

Once again, thank you for being so helpful

And, if someone else know where Fry is uploading his videos in YouTube, please respond. I have tried to find a "Stephen Fry" identity there. Perhaps I am really doing something wrong in my searches.

netromwatch, he doesn't upload vidoes on YouTube, that I know of. They've just recently added videos here on this site with 2.0. Stephen does have a YouTube channel where he uploaded some camera shots from a review he did on his blog. But it seems he only set up that channel for the camera review, since there has been no other uploads before or since the camera tests.

I suspect when he says he's uploading videos that he's getting them either onto the hard drive or sent on to the site administrators for posting.

We shall see I suspect

I used to be EternalStudent on these forums until the switch over. So don't get excited..I'm not someone new and exciting. I'm just me :P

I just read this "twitter" response Stephen gave to a fellow twitter:

"Good night. Thanks for the messages on YouTube ... sorry I don't have time to answer at length. Tweets suit me better x"

And I am almost 100% positive that I read something about uploading something on YouTube. Maybe just wishful thinking...... Because I cannot locate the message anymore.

I do apologize for being so persistent about this YouTube thing. But IF Stephen really were to upload small videos as he go about, it would be such a shame to miss it.

As always, thank you for quick answers

I still stand by my bit...I figured the response was to something the fellow twitterer put on youtube.

Ask Andrew Sampson...he'd know.
