- do you have a clue as to what a N9110 costs??
- the N9110 is slow, you would not want to use it.
- "much" space is needed when it comes to webbrowsing etc... that costs
a lot, especially if one is to take superexpensive (by comparison)
- "cheap" + "wireless"? Huh? A inexpensive wireless keyboard + mouse
already uses up 20% of this marvelous 150$ retail price.
- oh and engineering cost to modify the nokia design (which is optimized
first for space and only second for price mind you).
Look, I like that you are so creative et all but let's not forget the
basic rules of how an economy works. Maybe someone here can suggest a
good book on production, resource planing, budgeting and marketing.

their 500BG HDD in their 2GB RAM boxes? I can see that.
