Dingz.no - 1 Story

1) TEST: Nokia E61i (Øivind Idsø) 27 April 2007

In this story the Norwegian journalist writes: "Den utgjorde et av de første alvorlige forsøkene fra den finske mobilgiganten på å etterlikne den amerikanske BlackBerry-telefonenes epost-fokus." This is not correct. Blackberry is not American, it's Canadian and the story should say: "Den utgjorde et av de første alvorlige forsøkene fra den finske mobilgiganten på å etterlikne den kanadiske BlackBerry-telefonenes epost-fokus." Blackberry comes from the Canadian company Research In Motion (RIM) in the province of Ontario in Canada, not the USA. Why give the USA credit for a Canadian telephone? This would be like a Canadian journalist giving Germany or Sweden credit for a well know Norwegian successful product. The story was corrected in 2008.
