Nokia Conran 7600Sidetalkers of the world, unite: Tokyo's Conran Shops are to get an exclusive version of Nokia's 7600 in June. If you're quick enough to bag one of the limited edition of 300, a fearfully expensive Y73,000 gets you a serial-numbered box (which is, er, in no sense the first thing we throw away) and a strap, plus some plain black sidepieces to snap onto the phone. Maybe we should say "credulous" rather than "quick". Nokia's running all sorts of promotions for the 7600 in Japan (since it is, incredible as this may sound, the only handset they currently have that you can use here), but we don't like their chances for getting a foot in the door given that they seem pathologically unwilling to divulge which WCDMA carrier you can use it with (is it Vodafone? Is it DoCoMo?) and it costs more than twice as much as any phone the Japanese manufacturers are offering.
