A new all-touchscreen Nokia phone made its big screen debut in the new Star Trek movie that opened in the U.S. this weekend. The unannounced Nokia phone makes a cameo appearance as a product placement in the new Star Trek movie that all the kids are talking about. Remember when it seemed like everyone had that iconic Nokia ring tone (a.k.a. Grand Valse) on their phone?
The best part is this clip (embedded above) of a young James T. Kirk about to wreck his father's antique Corvette off a cliff while a futuristic robocop on a hoverbike tries to pull him over. All to the tune of Beastie Boys Sabotage which is presumably considered to be classical music for the period.
Oh yeah, the video clip also shows a few frames of the new Nokia handset too.
I'm assuming that the new Nokia gadget will be another in a long series of "iPhone killers?" We'll see about that. Symbian Freak isn't sure whether the outed phone is fact a real device or a concept designed for the movie. Nokia's mum on the topic.
More hype for the film is available on the official Movie site, IMDB and on the Apple trailers site, natch. I didn't see it yet, so feel free to give us your review (of the movie or the phone) in TalkBack below.
