Kudos to El Reg

Far better than other 'offerings' for today. Now to see which outlets pick this up and report it as 'real'.... he says waiting in trepidation for the end of civilisation when it proves to be true

A good attempt

Nice try El Reg, but I can see if this story is picked up elsewhere it may gather some momentum.

Okay... I'll call this one!

April fool!

Although I have no doubt Nokia would be stupid enough to make such a hideous thing, I can't believe for a minute that they're organised enough to make it with only a couple of years to prepare.

I wish it was true though. It would give us an easy way to identify X-factor zombies... I assume killing them would only carry a short sentence given that they are only a twitch away from brain death already?

So believable

This is actually a brilliant idea, and not beyond the realms of probability!

Cowell might be on the phone later...

X-factor

Hmmm...

Ran the CEO's name through Google Translate.

Hmmm, I can see why Fox keeps screwing over good, intelligent shows now, and Fox owned satellite companies are just equally daft and bring in only vapid channels while dropping the good ones within weeks if they do by chance bring a good one in.

Why? X-Factor is produced by Fox. Therefore the CEO is that of Fox.

Tyhmä...

Wouldn't that be a really stupid product? Especially in Finland. That Tuote fella must be a bit tyhmä... ;-)

Nice one, El Reg!

Is that a social phone too?

I would love to be able to use it to twit

"What should I eat for tea?

Text 10001 for leftovers from yesterday

Text 10002 for leftovers from the day before

Text 10003 for beans on toast".

And have my followers' votes displayed on my Facebook profile.

So that my phone numbers becomes immediately available to all the chefs of LinkedIn within 1 mile from my current location.

Vorsprung durch Technologie!
