The Nokia 8110 'banana phone' is about to go back on sale

[ad_1]

Nokia’s iconic 8110 ‘banana phone’ is about to go back on sale.

The legendary 90s phone wlil cost just £69 and will be available next week.

Comparing it to a modern smartphone is like putting a horse and cart up against a Nasa rocket ship.

But its stripped down features are perfect for anyone who just wants to make calls, rather than fill their phone with useless apps.

It’s likely to be wildly popular among drug dealers, people having affairs and anyone else looking for a ‘burner phone’ to be used for some illicit purpose or other.

The phone, which is curved to follow the shape of the face, also comes with a slider that reveals the keypad as well as answers calls.

Nokia, whose phones are now licensed by Finnish firm HMD Global, released an updated version of its classic 3310 at MWC last year, and the company’s return to nostalgia again was praised by experts.

Analyst Ben Wood from CCS Insight said: ‘In a sea of smartphone sameness it is little surprise that consumers get excited by a little bit of nostalgia.

‘It’s a smart move by HMD Global to add to its retro line with the addition of the new 8110. The 3110 was a huge success last year and helped return the Nokia brand to consumers’ consciousness in a spectacular manner.

‘Given the 8110 is another phone that is fondly remembered, particularly because of its appearance in The Matrix films, HMD Global will be hoping it will have a similarly positive effect on the awareness of Nokia branded phones.’
