nokiax

Ever since we first caught wind of the potential existence of an Android-powered Nokia smartphones twenty days ago, rumors have been flying around left and right. The device, which was thought to be named “Normandy,” is the embodiment of what many would consider the ideal device: the Android operating system running on Nokia’s critically acclaimed (and durable) hardware.

recycle-cell-phone1

I am, and have always been, an early adopter of a lot of things, particularly when it comes to technology. My cell phone voyage started back in the year 2000 with a Nokia 5110.

Cell phones have become a massive commodity—one that gets a lot of attention, and certainly one that is likely one of the most profitable industries in the world today (in the tech sector anyways).
