Chances are that for many of us, the Nokia 3210 was our first ever mobile phone, as much a means of communications as it was a way to play the mind-altering, addictive Snake game. With that in mind, it’s with a heavy heart that we must confirm that Nokia shall no longer be making mobile phones.
In April of this year, Microsoft purchased Nokia for $7 billion, and then slowly dismantled the company as we know it, while putting the Lumia brand in place of the old Nokia one. Since then Microsoft have continued to produce the phones, with the upcoming Lumia 535 to be their first post-Nokia smartphone, while Nokia themselves have taken themselves completely out of the market for the average consumer.
Fare thee well, Nokia phones. We’ll always look back at you and remember you fondly, mostly because your batteries didn’t seem to die every 45 minutes like the current iPhones.
