In the movie “Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay“, Harold & Kumar borrow a friend’s car, only to find a Nokia 7710 attached to the dashboard.

The Nokia 7710 was originally intended as a smartphone to compete with Apple’s famous iPhone, and runs on Symbian, the open-source operating system for mobile phones. It features a touch-screen color LCD with a resolution of 640×320 pixels and 65,535 colors, 90 MB internal memory, an SD slot to upgrade the memory to 2 GB, a built-in video camera, and supports FM radio and bluetooth capabilities.

Despite competing against one of the largest companies in the mobile arena, the Nokia 7710 received rave reviews upon its discovery. GSM Arena, for example, gave the device an average score of 8.2 out of 10.

In the movie “Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay“, on the plane at the start of the movie, we see Harold and Kumar watching a movie on a brand-new black MacBook Pro. First announced in January 2006, the MacBook Pro was the successor to the G4 Powerbook models. Although the G4 Powerbook did not live up to its expectations, the MacBook Pro was an instant hit with both Apple aficionados and newcomers alike. It was also the first Apple notebook to feature the use of Intel processors instead of the proprietary Apple PowerPC. Slick, thin, light, and sophisticated, the MacBook Pro is slowly becoming a notebook to reckon with.
