I used the google logo from http://google.com and this pic of the cell phone http://www.roverpowered.com/~booyaah/tayloredtech/images/6230.jpg. The site which used the pic (http://www.tayloredtech.co.uk/) seems to be dead now.

Note that I payed attention to the display of the Nokia 6230. The inserted pic has a resolution of 128² pixels, which is exactly what the cell phone has.

EDIT: Due to hosting problems with myimg.de I had to reupload it. Alternate Link:

Yeah... the icons are from Windows Vista and the Apple logo is from Apple... The search button and the I'm feeling lucky button is from safari viewing google.

That is the reason I don't think that I release voting results...

Seeing them may disappoint people from entering in the future, once they see how few votes they got (if any). It's not that people do not like your design, it's that they like other designs more.

Do you understand?

I will tell you that kipper010 liked your design a lot. ;)

I think the MSC should be ended now, since nothing can compete with...aww, heck, just ban Helio from it :)

ONLY KIDDING!! We need such things as this. :-)

Awesome work. Thanks, Helio. Great to look at; now I wants to use it!

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
