Not encyclopedic[edit]

From the article: "The "touch-screen" allows you to do quite a lot. Instead of pushing buttons all the time, you can simply use a pen-like device, a stylus to push an on-screen "button". The "button" is just like on your computer. The stylus acts like the arrow on a pc or mac, and by pushing on the screen, you "push the button on the mouse". The touch-screen also allows you to write characters directly on the screen. Like write an a, you get an a on the screen". Can't we rephrase this? Peter S. 22:26, 10 October 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Votes for deletion[edit]

Article listed on Wikipedia:Votes for deletion Apr 14 to Apr 20 2004, consensus not reached within the time limit. Discussion:

  • Same as the Nokia models. We don't need a separate page for every model of every product ever sold. Milestones can be noted in the manufacturer's article, and/or articles on the related new technology. Niteowlneils 21:04, 14 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Agreed. Cribcage 03:30, 15 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Wikipedia is not a product catalog. -- Cyrius|&#9998 03:36, Apr 15, 2004 (UTC)
    • No mention of "product catalog" in Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not. Jay 09:32, 16 Apr 2004 (UTC)
      • That is not an exhaustive list, and you know it. But between #2, #11, and #18, "not a product catalog" is fairly well implied. I'm tempted to violate state your point, don't prove it to get this across. I'm not going to, but imagine if product catalogs were imported on a regular basis. There'd be hundreds of thousands of pages of useless data. Do you really want to see "The Cornell Dubilier CD10CD010DO3 is a 500 V 1 pF mica capacitor" as the model for a half-million pages? -- Cyrius|&#9998 13:40, Apr 16, 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Valid entry. Remember: Wikipedia is not paper, We have many specific products from companies: Atari 800, Ford Taurus, Windows XP, iPod, Ultima Online. Davodd 09:25, Apr 15, 2004 (UTC)
    • Atari 800 redirects to Atari 8-bit family, and Ford Taurus and iPod are product family pages already. There are no pages for specific revisions of Windows XP or Ultima Online. None of the pages you listed are comparable to an article about a minor revision in a cell phone family. If people can actually write real articles about these, then let them say. But I don't see the feature lists of every cell phone Nokia ever made being any more useful than a data dump of the Mouser Electronics catalog. -- Cyrius|&#9998 13:45, Apr 15, 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep, useful information. This is the umpteenth time someone has listed a product or a product list for deletion. P'haps we need to have a policy on product articles, so we can just refer the link. Jay 10:34, 15 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Though I'm sure this is a fine product, it's far from being a milestone like the aforementioned Atari, iPod, Windows XP or even the Ford Taurus. It's just another cell phone in a sea of cell phones that will probably be out of production in the next couple of years or maybe less. - Lucky 6.9 17:05, 15 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Important product. AaronSw 17:44, 15 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: WP is not a product catalog. Wile E. Heresiarch 01:32, 16 Apr 2004 (UTC)
    • No mention of "product catalog" in Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not. Jay 09:32, 16 Apr 2004 (UTC)
      • To some extent, WP is what its editors want it to be; if I can convince enough people to wander off in a particular direction, then off we go. Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not doesn't say "WP is not" either, but if enough people believe it -- voilà, WP is not FWIW, Wile E. Heresiarch 15:08, 16 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Where's the sense in losing perfectly good information? Merge it somewhere maybe, but keep the info. Everyking 02:16, 16 Apr 2004 (UTC)
I agree. I should have mentioned merging when I added it. Niteowlneils 00:31, 17 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. BL 08:10, Apr 19, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete or merge into something else, like perhaps a timeline showing historical additions. --ssd 03:46, 20 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • AGAINST ! - What's with people and deleting articles which give you information. It may not be important to you, but maybe important to other people wanting to know something about the phone. Even if it goes out of production, it doesn't matter. The article contains information, and no matter how useful or useless the information is, it should never be deleted, especially from an encyclopedia that is maintained by the people of the world. This is what separates Wikipedia from all other encyclopedias. There is no restriction on space or any such things. All articles should be given equal importance. Prasan Naik 03:45, 18th December 2006 (UTC)
  • Keep. Significant difference from the P800, significant phone in development of PDA mobiles. (talk) 23:37, 16 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]
