Keypad for the iPhone?


The fake iPhone sold in China is really popular here. It has dual sim cards and a whole bunch of cool accessories that the iPhone doesn't have. With Hermes starting a fully Chinese brand, and Ford selling off their cars to Chinese companies there's a whole lotta switching around going on. Maybe Apple will start to copy the accessories of the fake iPhone. Could be a good business for someone like me who doesn't appreciate touch screen blogging.

Nokia Christmas showcase in Paris

I'm a phone fiend. One could even say I'm a Nokia fiend (I have at least 3 in my bag right now and have had 10 or so different Nokia over the years).

So of course, last night I jumped at the opportunity to go to the Nokia Christmas showcase afterwork party!


I could tell you about the new N96, or the new E series but what I really want to talk to you about is this:
Eco phones!
The one on the left is going to be part of the upcoming layout and will have an intelligent charger that you can leave plugged in, it will NOT consume any energy. The one on the right is a concept phone: Remade is made entirely of recycled material: Coke cans for metal, tires for the plastic parts, etc.

Also, Nokia is partnering with various companies to offer a we:recycle box where you can drop your old phone, 5€ will go to the WWF of France.

And I was lucky enough to catch Xavier for a presentation of the eco phones!

Are you sure you mean the "author" or should it not read "until the moderator has approved them?" The authors approve or else they wouldn't have made comments in the first place.


An author in this case would refer to the person who wrote the blog, however sometimes in cyber space meanings start warping according to your personal perspective.
