The Nokia 8110 was quite a surprise announcement at MWC this year and it was the second retro phone to be brought to us by HMD Global and Nokia last year being the 3310 which has several iterations now due to its popularity. Dubbed as the banana phone many tech fans welcomed the move though some say it was another marketing trick by HMD Global and Nokia as they did before with the 3310 but the general public beg to differ on that and sales of the 3310 have been good and proven popular.

The 8810 reboot with 4G which will be in the region of €79 and is to hit the shelves later this year and at that price be it a nostalgic purchase or buying the phone to use as a main device it is cost-effective given its more a feature phone and not a fully fledged smart phone with its striking looks coming in Black and Yellow and there was a hint of a Blue version it surely will sell on its own merits.

I spoke to Kamali Melbourne at TRTWORLD about the Nokia 8810 and what I think of the device and what is happening. Watch their news bulletin or you can Skip to 10.25 for my discussion on the Nokia 8810. Watch out for more soon..
