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.
