27 November 2008Off-the-shelf phones are so old school, according to Nokia. There is a build-your-own spokesman website where you can use your own phone, somehow.
Nokia Build lets you design your own 7310
Yeah, we know - stick the the day job, right?
Unfortunately, the Nokia Build site has only one telephone for selection: the 7310 supernova. You start by choosing a basic design on the back - We have a wall - and can then either some additional details, such as a spray painted nameplate, or start adjusting the phone's innards.
Nokia gives you the opportunity to introduce a software package with the phone, but you have only three categories to choose from: games, music and diversity, including wallpaper.
Each package is free, but you can use a Nokia such as games, to the phone. This is a big disappointment, because you have not even given the option to pay more and have all three.
You must also choose between two types of additional clip-on covers. These are free, but seems a bit pointless if you have just in the last few hours carefully designing the back of your 7310th
However, if you yearn for a single phone messages that we help get you from the crowd, while talking and SMS, Nokia will build is a handy little tool. It is now available online and costs £ 138 ($ 211 / £ euros, 163) by telephone.
