Fiat mobile!!!But there's no company to beat Nokia in India (dunno y)but i find Sony Ericsson's range is better than Nokia except for the battery life and resale value.
BTW i use a Nokia

yeah, sure ... i can imagine a mobile phone from fiat

it would probably be huge and bulky, weigh a ton, have the fastest processor around, have a rock-solid UI with umpteen security features, and so rugged that you can put a hammer to it without fear

and even though its battery may not last more than a couple of hours, the keypad may be smaller than your thumb, the screen may blank off to prevent you from taking pictures in bad-light, and search for proper repair and maintenance would take one to timbuktu without much luck, it would be one of a kind and owners would still swear by it
