The Finnish town of Nokia, made famous by the cellphone company, is going mobile. All mobile, all the time.
Sound like a giant marketing stunt? Nope. Actually, the cell phone maker moved out years ago and had no role in the town’s decision. It’s cheaper.
Nokia’s municipal workers will get cellular handsets. The only landline phones will be connected to fax machines.
Idea: Pitch competitor Ericcson to subsidize the move — and get the town to change its name while they’re at it.
