In typically random British fashion we're sending a phone into space. No, it's not an iPhone, or a Galaxy S2 -- that would have been appropriate -- no the lucky little guy will be the Google Nexus One.
Our very own Sam Gibbs, news editor extraordinaire, made an appearance on Al Jazeera news today to discuss the "world's cheapest tablet," which will be sold in India to students for the subsidised price of £22, and later in shops for £38.
Everyone and their aunt has played Snake, right? It came standard on most Nokia phones (it probably still does), a bare-bones monochromatic puzzler that involved stopping a greedy snake from bashing into its own tail.
