Besides, why should I care whether Perl is in my Nokia phone or not? I have a Nokia phone and I can use the phone to call other people, and other people can call me on the phone. It does it work well. Why should it matter to me whether there's Perl under the hood or not?
Boy, that must be an old phone! :)
I, personally, haven't seen a phone release within the last three years that does ONLY calling (in and out). Phones that I've seen are packed with functionality like contact managers, organizers, image, music and movie players and recorders, games and whatever else one could imagine. Modern phones are powerful pieces of equipment and having a proper tool (read: perl) for handling them is a sure plus in my book. :)
Your opinion might differ of course. :)
