Nokla N95, Whats in a name?


I am not going to say much, cause these pictures will tell you more.

Nokla is a made in China product (who would have guessed). Priced at under USD 150, this N95 avatar even comes with touchscreen and stylus (one up on the Nokia N95!). I believe this one was bought in Chennai, India, although, I am pretty sure that’s not the only place you can find it.

But,with 13 billion in cash reserves Google can afford to surprise us and itself. It is learnt that they plan to bid for the 700 Mhz spectrum in the US to be offered on Jan 24th 2008. They have enlisted help from game theory experts to project the outcome of the auction!

What’s next for Google? Aviation!
