I think it is squarely and cleanly fair use.
It's a sentence and a half
for goodness sake!
Maybe, but that's no reason not to at least ask them :-)
Sure, but ask them what? The sentence was contributed anonymously, so
there's no one to credit. I guess you could ask them to release the
box cover under the GFDL, and if there was actually some use to that I
think it'd be a good idea. But it's just a box cover.
I vote someone scans in the box cover and puts it up on in the [[Nokia
770 Internet Tablet]] article as a GFDL image. Then hope they sue,
just for the irony or whatever it'd be called. :)
