iPhone 5 One Of Many Unwanted Gifts This Christmas [PI]

By  | 

One of the hottest new smartphones to arrive last year was the iPhone 5. Alongside the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2, you would think that it would be the ideal gift for someone special given its universal appeal. Well apparently not.

iPhone 5 among unwanted Christmas gifts abandoned at Premier Inn hotelchain

The folk over at Emirate247 report that Premier Inn, one of the UK’s biggest chain of hotels, have compiled a list of Christmas gifts their guest left behind during the holiday period.

Some of the interesting items in the list included this year’s bestseller, 50 Shades Of Grey, which the hotel reported that they had found 17 copies of when they were cleaning out the rooms after check out.

But what is really surprising is the abandonment of a new white iPhone 5. PI said that the guests didn’t bother to collect or even call to enquire about the seemingly unwanted gift.

If I had to guess, it must have been an Android fanboy or girl.
