mir, 20 Sep 2016When Nokia comes back and decide to re-release the Nokia N82 with updated specs and camera wit... moreI REALLY hope this happens! If such a phone gets released, it will sell A LOT! I would buy it right away too! A lot of people would buy strong spec phones with physical keyboard!
Also, a very fine idea would be to also release a long successor to the Nokia 6233, with specs the same and better than the Nokia N82, but with Series 40 OS.... ;) It will definately be a great seller! I really miss the golden days of the Series 40 phones... :(
However, if people would like these phones back, they could start up a forum with a mobile phone wishlist or a page in Facebook or something and let HMD Global know about it... Just saying an idea...
for people saying the Nokia failed to live up to their big promise after their announcements, you clowns really are casual users that has no idea what you are talking about, this basic phone is from Microsoft Nokia, Nokia Finland still has a contract with them until the end of this month and this year, Nokia Finland will be identified if you see a Nokia with an Android OS, research first before opening your lazy mouth keyboard warriors
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2016Creating a new basic phone is fine and all... but VGA? Cmon Nokia, get your head out of the 20... moreYes, you are very right! They should have more phones with 5 megapixel cameras + good lens (such as Carl Zeis Optics Tessar)! Nowdays, these lens will be very cheap to produce without raising the price of the mobile phones too much...
Akalp, 20 Sep 2016You dont need cameras on a feature phone as they are utterly useless. I had bought a dumb phon... moreThat was indeed a dumb phone coz Nokia has no phone at 850 rupees. The only phones worth looking at are Nokia 230, 225, 220, 215 and now 216
Front cam with LED makes 216 very mouth watering indeed....
insanejojo, 20 Sep 2016can this phone run whatsapp?WhatsApp support for Symbian and BB phones ends on 31st Dec 2016.
Migz, 20 Sep 2016Well it so happens that I had bought Nokia 230 for my dad, but before giving it to him I'd use... moreIt's ok to buy a feature phone. No need to bring in your dad, mom and gfs grandmother.
"The coming back of Nokia" hahahaha no thanks for the trashy stuff
Just quoting "stereo FM radio receiver, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a micro-USB 1.1 port - the iPhone 7 has none of those." yup!! You lose to a basic nokia phone iPhone!! you LOSE!!!!!
I loved the part when it says "IPhone 7 has none of these"......
A nice jab... :-)
Well, old nokia s60/s40 series was very good. But todays s40 series phones has seemed many problems. .
Would love me a nokia qwerty beast running android if they ever make one..
Creating a new basic phone is fine and all... but VGA? Cmon Nokia, get your head out of the 2000's. 5 Mpx rear cameras should be basic in 2016.
Surya Senthil, 20 Sep 2016I think its upgraded version of famious Nokia 1100... Microsoft finally ditch windows mobiles ... moreWorld will be physically broken again if Nokia 1100 successor was to be released. Holes in the grounds, buildings crumbling, and random earthquakes in the city. Nokia 1100 successor is Armageddon.
This small 216 seems harmless.
Xylon524, 20 Sep 2016I didn't think Microsoft could produce a handset with the name Nokia anymore?That's because Nokia is coming back on 2017 while MS is winding up its Smartphone segment.
Loved the old classic Nokia's from back in the day,hope they start making them again with no Microsoft interference
Well it so happens that I had bought Nokia 230 for my dad, but before giving it to him I'd used it as my back up phone for a week. Well turns out that I love it for music playing and radio listening and frequent calls from my mom. Will buy this though once it will be available in the shelves in the Philippines!
