Been an avid super fan of Nokia and a phone collector myself id like to introduce to you to a guy called Richard Dorman
Recently i let Nokia into my world and revealed a little about me and my collection you can read that jim o briens collection which now stands at 126.
I got to know Richard via twitter and found out he also has a huge collection,that is how we got talking and now you can see what he has here,just for the record we don’t compete as to who has the most,we just share the same passion.
Over to you Richard.
Q1- Tell us a little about yourself.
Where to start? Well, I am OLD!! I have been a Nokia user for 17 years. I am British and I would probably call Cambridgeshire”home”. I spent 20 years in the catering industry before giving up work to support my wife in her career when moving to America in 2007. Spent two very happy years in the US before moving to Finland. Which leads us to the present day.
Q2-You’re a collector of Nokia devices – when and where did it begin, and why?
I guess it started almost by accident. I just found one day I had 20 or so Nokia devices. To begin with I wasn’t an avid collector. It happened gradually from about 2007/8 whilst in the US. Then in 2011, I really started to collect. I only had about 50 devices at that point. Now it is nearly 200.
Above is a sample of his collection and Richard will send us in an updated one with the entire collection soon.
Q3- You’re an avid photographer – when did this all begin?
I have always been the one in the family to take pictures, but the Nokia N8 changed things for me. Something seemed to just click, pardon the pun. From then I have got increasingly more interested in photography and hopefully improved a bit. I do seem to have developed an unhealthy fascination with stars and photography.
Q4- Will you continue collecting nokia phones and what plans have you got for the future?
Yes, I will continue. I have a lot of friends in Nokia and most will be transferring to Microsoft when the deal goes through. I will continue to support those people in their new company and hopefully will continue to collect Nokia devices. I don’t really see any reason to stop, after all there are some great devices I don’t have that I would like.
