Phone can last, but technology moves on
Very true, I have a phone from 2000 thats still going strong, it's my back up/holiday phone if I'm going camping or anything potentially mucky. Like it or not the current phone situation, like most things, is about supply and demand and is unlikely to change dramatically, therefore looking at ways of reducing the impact the actually handsets have on the planet seems like a very good idea to me. It's a shame they couldn't make a working prototype but I'm fairly sure I've heard something on this story before, not necessarily connected to Nokia though, and there is a proposed timeline for working recycled/more eco-friendly handsets.
Haha, Kopite might have a point!
But, as an RSI sufferer myself I still think it's a marvellous idea & would love to get hold of one. I might have to lock it in a drawer at night to avoid 'humorous' remodelling attempts though!
who like extreme sports will only doing their extreme sports for a relatively small amount of time. What about all the other time when having a standard mobile will be much more preferable.
I don't think this will catch on.
