Newspaper telephone launched

Dagens Nyheter from Sweden has rolled out what is known as the first “newspaper” telephone in the world, featuring a handset that provides free access to its website for daily subscribers. This sounds more like a novelty item than anything else, unless you’re a world leader who needs to know what’s happening all the time. I figure out that a RSS news feed would be much better since you get the latest headlines at the top always instead of sifting through a whole paper. Either that or you can always get a WiFi capable device (even a DS Lite or PSP will do just fine) to check out the current news as long as you’re within a WiFi hotspot. Dagens Nyheter subscribers can pick up the Nokia 6120 3G handset and fork out $33 monthly for this unique call plan. Do you think this idea will take off universally?
