Thirteen or more years ago, many people owned a Nokia phone. Despite being heavier, the 3210 was built to last – a child could toss it multiple times and its functioning would not at all be affected.
They say nostalgia only comes when a certain happy time is well and truly gone and could never happen again. Comes now the Nokia 105 – made available in the Philippines by HMD Global. For Nokia fans, this is the legitimate news that they have been waiting for.
For months, there have been posts on social media, users selling a new Nokia version of 3310 at different prices. Some were obviously copies.
Why buy a copy when an original can be obtained at an affordable price of P850 – that is only P10 more than a case of beer if the beer is Pale Pilsen at P35 per bottle.
This new Nokia 105 has all the features of the old Nokia unit and more: users can still play Snake Xenzia with the added attraction of two more trial games in Doodle Jump and Crossy Road
Of course, it is not a touchscreen phone but it has an island keymat instead with separated keys so that even a senior citizen would have no trouble using it.
As well, a blabbermouth who talks all the time on the phone would appreciate the Nokia 105, with its talk-time of 15.7 hours after only one full charge. Great storage too, with up to 500 text messages and 2,000 contacts, InterAksyon reported.
The Nokia 105 is available in Dual and Single SIM variants, with both having a built-in FM Radio. It also charges by using a standard micro USB 2.0 cable.
With a LED torchlight and an FM Radio like other brands today, the Nokia 105 is available in black or white with a matte finish.
“More than 400 million feature phones were sold globally in 2016. We cannot underestimate the need and benefit of being connected and we are dedicated to delivering devices that can enable many people around the world to expand their horizon,” Arto Nummela, CEO, HMD Global, said in a statement.
