For Nokia, clear is the new color
Nokia executive Anssi Vanjoki has been telling anyone who would listen that the cellphone is going to kill the iPod, just like its built-in photo-taking features are killing the digital camera. But the iPod is not proving as easy a mark, thanks in part to the vast iPod economy of cool accessories that go with Apple's ubiquitous MP3 player.

Now Nokia's trying to get cool, too, and we have to hand it to them: A clear, portable boombox that hooks up to your music-playing Nokia cellphone, discovered by the Coolhunter blog, is pretty awesome. It's one heck of a gadget fashion statement: Clear is the new color -- and the cellphone is the new iPod.
