Hack the box to get to the phone

Nokia has been struggling a bit this year, but this “hack it” to get your phone unboxing is pretty interesting. Once you “root” the box it opens up and a little puff of smoke appears, along with your phone (if you’re a phone / gadget reviewer). It’s interesting to see what’s been happening on the artist/maker side of phone hacking, a couple years ago the Nokias were all used for projects – and then the iPhone came out and almost immediately the very same folks were jailbreaking and then making their own apps. There’s still not a lot of hardware interaction, but the iPhone seems to be the phone of choice for hackin’ around oddly enough.
