Planned Obsolescence Extraordinaire a la O2

TH asks "Do we really need a new
cellphone every 6 months?". What is going on out there people? Criminy. This is a current offer by O2 in the UK (not to be confused......with green design portal ::O2).

Couple of cell phone facts:
>1.14 Billion of these suckers in 2002
>Avg duration of use in the US is 18 months
>Germany has eco-labels for cell phones
>Nokia working on biodegradable plastics and easy disassembly
