"Who are you?" -Blair's first text message
"你是谁?“ 这是布莱尔收到的第一条短信

Sat Jan 12, 9:38 AM ET

PARIS (Reuters) - It's not often that former prime minister Tony Blair is not recognised. But his first foray into the world of mobile phone messaging left one friend puzzled.

  巴黎(路透社)--英国前首相托尼布莱尔不被认出的情况不多见。 不过当他第一次尝试发手机短信时让一位朋友感到迷惑。

Blair told a conference organised by France's ruling UMP party in Paris he got his first mobile phone six months ago.


"When I lived at Downing Street I never had one. I got my first mobile the day I left," said Blair, who is now a Middle East envoy.


"I sent an SMS (short message service) to a friend, but given my lack of technological knowledge I didn't realise the telephone hadn't identified me as the sender. I got an SMS back saying: 'But sorry, who are you?'", Blair said.
