nokia-5230-overclocked

Usually when discussions of overclocking enter the room, we're talking about desktop computers being water-cooled and pumped up as high-end gaming rigs. That's not the case today. Instead, we take a rather ho-hum Nokia and effectively double the clock speed on its processor.
