London muggers choose Nokia

Researchers at Loughborough University studied 112,000 crimes in London last year, and found that the Nokia 6230 was the most stolen handset, followed by Samsung's D500 and Motorola’s hugely popular RAZR. Standards in the capital are higher across the board, it seems.

The fact that thieves have similar taste to consumers fits neatly into the 'Pope Catholic shocker!' and 'Bear defecates in woodland area' category of scoops. But it does serve to make owners of hideously out of date handsets (such as your humble author) feel smug. And hideously out of date.
