With three hundred fans packed outside the cramped confines of the Optus Store, Beckham candidly told the media throng in attendance of his boys, dropping mobile phones down toilets and last night’s football match against Sydney FC.
“It’s amazing that the country can create such hysteria,” Beckham said of the match, in which he scored with one of his trademark curling freekicks. “It’s [Sydney] been amazing since the moment I arrived.”
As global ambassador for Motorola, Beckham revealed the new phone which features the familiar MOTORAZR design in a gold finish with snake-like skin. It will be available exclusively through Optus World, ‘yes’ shops and participating Optus dealers throughout Australia.
“I have a great relationship with Motorola,” Beckham said. “[The relationshship] is something I’m passionate about and I’m privileged to be part of.”
Part of that privilege includes getting the latest phones from the vendor for free, a benefit that his three young boys are currently relishing.
“My sons are just getting into phones now and they love Motorola for the games and snakeskin on the back,” he said.
But getting the latest model mobile phones is perhaps more useful for Beckham, who has a habit of regularly losing his.
“Now and again I lose my phone. I’ve dropped a few down the toilet.”
