Top womens website Her.ie has paid tribute to the long and gone nokia 3210 which was super popular in its day,here is what they had to say.Sue Murphy writes the following!
EIGHT REASONS WE REALLY MISS THE NOKIA 3210
Everyone had a Nokia 3210 when they were younger, for most it was the first phone, for others it became the only phone that you would ever use. Here are eight reasons we miss the Nokia 3210.
1. It was virtually indestructible.
We have seen Nokias washed in the washing machine, hit concrete floors and fall into toilets and they still come out absolutely perfectly.
Hours and hours of endless amusement.
3. The Covers Were Amazing.
One particular Her.ie staff member had a cover which was a map of Middle Earth from the Lord of the Rings. Amazing.
4. You could make sweet, sweet music.
There was none of this “download a tone” rubbish, with the Nokia 3210, you could become Beethoven.
5. Personlised Service
You turned on your phone, and it declared your name! Occasionally with a nice little picture that moved on the screensaver. Nice….
6. The Nokia ringtone
The universal sound for a phone ringing now.
7. Predictive text
Sure, your iPhone does this sometimes, but certainly not to the same extent as your wonderful Nokia. Of course, it did take a while to actually adapt to that.
8. A phone was a phone.
Wasn’t everything just better when all you used your phone for was text messages and calls? Now, it knows your life better than you do.
Her.ie and sue we salute you for a great reminder of a nokia classic.
