The phone named after a fruit

Scott Jagow Feb 12, 2009

And I’m not talking about Apple. I’m referring to the pomegranate phone. This product may be old news in some circles, but if you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing it, I encourage you to give it a try. NPR did a story about it this week, which you can listen to here, but don’t go there until after you’ve visited pomegranate.com. You’ll spoil all the fun. Come back and tell me what you’ve discovered.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
