Nokia: Touching 3G

NOON -- There's a lot of buzz going on about a Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK) rival to the iPhone. The 5800 "tube" is supposedly a touch-screen 3G phone with 140MB of storage and all multimedia mod-cons.

Yep, another so-called iPhone killer. [Ed note: Rolls eyes.]

Bear in mind -- as this latest round of hype grows -- that Nokia has already said that it is working on a touchscreen device but isn't going to rush devices out. (See Nokia: Keep Your Hands to Yourself.)

The firm plans to have a touch interface for the S60 operating system out later this year, which would likely push the launch of actual devices out until next year.

Dan is to hats what Will.I.Am is to ridiculous eyewear. Fedora, trilby, tam-o-shanter -- all have graced the Jones pate during his career as the go-to purveyor of mobile essentials.

But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."

His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.
