Recently I bought a Nokia phone. A new Nokia phone.
A Nokia 206.
The software is basic, and usability is distinctly average. It has a 2.4″ screen for ‘big screen entertainment’. So says the marketing guff.
But it offers dual SIM, which is useful if you travel a lot. It fits nicely in the hand. And is dirt cheap. It is what phones used to be – small and simple and sturdy. Built to last.
Unlike my last smartphone – a Blackberry – which decided two years into its brief and arduous life that it would expire.
While my Nexus 7 does the heavy lifting, my Nokia does the simple stuff well and gets me places seamlessly.
There’s something to be said for that.
