Nokia bans the word 'phone'

According to The Seattle Times, Nokia staff are forbidden to call the devices it makes 'phones'.

"We are forbidden to call them phones," said the vice president of multimedia strategy and business development. Instead, they're "multimedia computers."

"The decree reveals Nokia's vision of the cellphone future, one in which one device will manage your information, communication and entertainment needs a single remote control of sorts for your electronic life." [via The Inquirer]
