PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Nokia is set to market their first Windows Phone 8 hardware differently, according to a report by the Financial Times. The manufacturer will be entering into partnerships with a handful of EU carriers to exclusively launch their next generation Windows Phone. The newspaper states the company has already entered into talks with a number of operators including France Telecom." Not to be a spoilsport or anything, but doesn't carrier exclusivity kind of rely on people actually, you know, desperately wanting a certain device? It's like Nokia's executives live in this fairytale land where people are actually buying Lumias and plan their actions accordingly. It's uncanny.

Now, a ~launcher more or less copying those old phones could be curious... just with touch scrolling, maybe also a bit winphone-like.

And somebody did a full-on review still in 2005: http://www.mobile-review.com/review/nokia-1101-en.shtml

I like to keep such phone (1208, not much difference really, vs 1100 that I once borrowed, just needlessly fancied-out UI and 4-dir scroll button) for ~trekking; or at least that's what I kept telling myself for some time.
