Forum Nokia Champion 2008!

Today (26 Feb 2008) I just received an email form Forum Nokia informing me that I have been selected as a Forum Nokia Champion for the year 2008-2009.

"Because Forum Nokia wants forum.nokia.com community members to know how very much their hard work and involvement is appreciated, we have launched Forum Nokia Champion, a recognition and reward program for top mobile developers from around the world. Forum Nokia Champions are outstanding individuals who are selected on the basis of their outstanding skills and devotion to the Forum Nokia community."

It is really a matter of great honour for me to have the Forum Nokia Champion title.
I am looking forward to more and more new developments in the Forum Nokia as well as mobile application development in the coming months.

Recycled Nokia Devices

Nokia revealed the Remade concept at the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona. The idea is to assemble mobile devices made from nothing new, according to Nokia. "It has been designed using recycled materials that avoid the need for natural resources, reduce landfill, and allow for more energy efficient production," per the company's description on the Nokia Web site.

The phone would be made from recycle aluminum cans. The chassis materials would come from plastic drinking bottles. The rubber key mats would be made from old car tires. "Inside the phone are new more environmentally friendly technologies such as printed electronics, and the graphics used on the display save energy without compromising on style," according to the company.
