Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK): Nokia is aware that people are familiar with its popular ringtone, and a global study revealed that the most commonly preferred ringtone style is classical. This influenced the company, when it prepared to create 25 new tones for its new phones, to bypass the boring classics on a synth in a lab, but in instead decided to record a 55-piece symphony orchestra. “We think that the sound of an orchestra is timeless,” stated Tapio Hakanen, Nokia’s head of sound and visual content. “It’s equally relevant three years from now or five years from now–it’s been relevant for hundreds of years, so that doesn’t change.”
Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB): Yet again, there is talk of a Facebook phone, which was sparked by a deal that was agreed upon this week at Orange, and it has been named “Party Call.” The “social calling” service only works with Facebook, and it will work with both mobile and desktop versions of the site. In regards to the Facebook phone, this deal is important because Facebook is not leading the initiative. Instead, Orange is using Facebook’s open API, as it works with Orange’s IP-based calling and messaging app Libon (Life is Better On).
