Two days ago a received an interesting email from the good folks at WOM World letting me know that a very special Limited Edition N97 Antitheft device was enroute to me. Accompanying it were the following words, ‘The device is getting a lot of attention for its looks and is becoming very desirable. To ensure the safety of your handset we have sent you a very special Limited Edition Antitheft device. Look for it in your mail in a few days’.
This really got me wondering what it was; Mark from The Nokia Blog was also sent this message along with the following picture, and now I think I know what is coming and I think I am going to love it.
I think a replica of the Nokia Mobira Cityman, the world’s first NMT hand portable is on its way and it will be able to hold the N97 thereby fooling ‘possible theives’ into thinking it was a old relic. Here’s how the device looked like:
If I am right and this is what it is, I am really looking forward to rocking the N97 this way in public. I just hope some collector doesn’t think this ‘relic’ is more valuable than the N97 itself!
