    Baz, it's a bit early for Bond girl Friday where you are. But it shows you're keen to contribute.

    Was searching for this for years - Mathis' phone from QOS

    Credit to christotheman from ajb007 forum.

    Nice design/details inside, and the pattern on top kind of shimmers in the light.

    I love how Mathis keeps telling the taxi driver to shut up while he's on the phone. :))

    THAT'S THE ONE!

    Reassuring to know that MI6 are Apple users. Reduces the chances of getting hacked by some sort of malicious virus.
    What's a Tomorrow Never Dies Interactive Educational Guide?

    It's quite a thing! I believe it was sent free to schools for use by students doing Film Studies or Media Studies at A level. It has Bond questions to ponder, e.g. Do all the actors cast as Bond bring humour to the part?, and also the 'Tomorrow Deadline Simulator', a neat little desktop publishing tool that lets you create your own issue of Tomorrow.

    I did a series of tweets about it because I'm easily amused.

    They used IBMs, Fujitsus, Gateways and Sonys in the Brosnan films - not sure there were any Apple Macs?

    They must have outsourced printing their documents, then!

    Speaking of IBM, here's a spectacularly mediocre item (I think my long-suffering father must have snagged this for me at a marketing convention):

    Sell enough personal computers and you might win a GoldenEye pen!

    Interesting promo. Would be cool to win one of those jackets!

    I'm not surprised! That Peter Franks passport prop seems like something that's would be right up your alley to make!

    How fun! I guess that 'Tomorrow Deadline Simulator' has a print function? Then maybe it's possible to make a Tomorrow newspaper prop? :-)

    It is! I've done a lot of work on Bond's 'Arlington Beech' passport from CR. The biggest challenge may be adding the foil on the cover.

    Not surprised by that! Foil can be difficult to work with when it's applied to something as small as a passport.

    Yeah, I'll have to get that professionally done, that's why I put it on the back burner for now.

    That might be a good idea. There are probably online services for this too.

    Not the same model, but I had a Sony Ericsson that was quite similar. One of the better phones I've had, actually.

    Do you use Ebay to find these phones?

    Yep, all from eBay, but I do a little bit of improvising- if I can't find the actual phone, I'll hunt down the shell/housing and assemble it as I have done with this one here. The buttons and screen are held in place with cardboard and tape. I have nearly all the phones now, whether real, shells, or dummies. The Mathis phone on the previous page is real- took me years to find that one, and the SF phone a few pages back is a dummy.

    Do you ever use them (the real ones that is), or is it just for display? Have never used Ebay myself, actually. There's always some stuff there worth getting, though!

    I don't use them. Apparently some work, but most came without the battery. Perhaps if timing is right, I'll buy one seen in B25. Now that Sony's out, it will be interesting to see what kind of phones appear, if any at all. Moneypenny's gift phone from Bond was a Samsung - maybe we'll see more from them?

    Thanks mate. A bit uninspired though, compared to others here.

    Guess we'll see whatever brand lands product placement rights, etc. Samsung would be very likely; they know how to promote their products, as well.

    Your name is Torgeir? That means 'Thor's spear'. And you like to listen to trap music?

    It does, it's an old Norse name, and a regular one here.
    What is trap music? It's really just the first part of my last name, so if @barryt007's user name is uninspired… :))
