A new Nokia 8110?? Surely not

Interesting piece today on the recently announced ‘re-imagining’ of my favourite retro phone:


Mobile World Congress 2017 saw HMD Global revive the Nokia 3310 feature phone and now they’re at it again.

I already use an 8110i as my second phone yet… yet I’m tempted by this one. Even the legacy banana phones I restore only have 3-4 days standby time. This has 25 days plus 4g tethering plus some other features.

Anyone else tempted by it?

Interestingly I’ve also noted that eBay listed handsets – even barebones phones with no batteries or aerials – have jumped in recent weeks. Retro is big at the moment. I’m also getting more people visiting this blog and asking me 8110- related questions.

I’ll post a review if I get my hands on one!
