My Koranic Cellphone

The Dubai corporation, Ikone Mobile Communications, has come out with the I-800 Islamic cellphone loaded with functions: The full text of the Koran, Mecca direction finder, Ramadan calendar, Julian-Hirji date converter, and automatic sleep mode for prayer, to mention a few.

Ikone is derived from the Arabic word for universe.
