    The article didn't say, and my assumption was that they had repurposed
    an ordinary assigned character, like the groundbreaking and innovative
    font developer who proudly repurposed U+0060.

    Not to claim this is a great selling point of my phone, but it allows me
    to choose from a catalog of smileys by Pressing One Key, and translates
    the chosen image to a sequence of ASCII characters so it can be seen on
    any phone. Can the rupee symbol generated by a Lava B5 be seen as a
    rupee symbol on other phones?

    Just wait for the darned character to be assigned.
