GLOBAL – All hands together for Friday please, as not only does that mean it’s the start of the weekend, but also this is the day that we collect the best bits from other sites that we often ‘bump’ into that make us stop, look and listen. We like to listen as much as we like to talk here on Nokia Conversations. Read on for our favourites, from the rest of the Web.

  • I know what you’re all thinking. “What would my Nokia phone look like, if it were invented in 19th century Victorian-era Britain?” That’s not what you were thinking? Well, it was the thought of designer and Steampunk fan, Ivan Mavrovic. Full story and photos of such a device can be found at
  • Damon Darlin from the New York Times talks about how many pairs of pants (that’s trousers here in the UK) he owns, how many mobile phones he has, and also how people try to divert their data downloads from network operators to any WiFi connection available. Damon goes into some figures to show why operators are happy we’re all turning to texting.
  • The Nokia E7 was announced earlier this week, with Anssi Vanjoki calling it the ‘New Communicator’. Steve Litchfield over at places the old Nokia E90 alongside the new Nokia E7 to do some detailed comparisons.
  • Aardman Animations have set a Guinness World Record for “Smallest stop-motion animation character in a film”, with their new short film: ‘Dot’.  The movie was shot entirely with the upcoming Nokia N8, and again shows off the camera quality.
  • CJ from picked up on some news from Nokia World that it seems most people missed out on. Nokia Reserch Centre demonstrated a great piece of tech that could be a thing of the future. Think of GPS and Sat Nav, but for indoors. Sounds like a great idea. Watch the video of the Indoor Navigator.

That concludes our week of the Web’s best bits, and also our week from Nokia World 2010. Don’t forget you can share your thoughts with us on any of the links above, in the comments below.
