Finnish newspaper Iltasanomat reports that a Helsinki resident took possession of a pink Nokia Lumia 800 yesterday, but that he may have some difficulty charging it later.
Zookeepers at the Helsinki Zoo noticed one of their primates had taken possession of the pink smartphone, presumably dropped by a visitor earlier.
The head of the tribe it appears immediately took a liking to the device, and was refusing to drop it, frustrating zoo keepers who were trying to retrieve it. Normally the zookeepers do not enter the paddock at the same time as the monkeys, but clean up after they return to their cages.
Zoo visitors immediately noticed the new addition to the show, and at first thought it was a joke or Nokia promotion, but Zoo Marketing Officer Susanna Silvonen denied this.
She notes that the monkey may be smart enough to use the phone, but that the charge has probably run out now, and that it may end up being a chewing toy.
So far the real owner of the handset has not made an appearance yet.
