You remember Nokia for the legendary 3310 that no one could break, or for the Nokia N95 that had all the features (before having-all-the-features was a thing). But you might not remember that, for a few years in the mid-oughts, while The Killers were killing the Billboards and Google was first going public … Nokia was going a little bit crazy.
Yep, it’s time for another episode of When Phones Were Fun – and this time MrMobile’s rose-tinted glasses are focused on some of the strangest mobile devices ever to hit store shelves. From the vase-like Nokia 3650 to the leaf/eyeball/alien artifact Nokia 7600, some of the craziest cellphones of the noughties came straight out of Espoo … and thanks to a generous loan from friend of the channel (and Nokia collector) Martin, those phones spend this entire video under the lenses of Michael Fisher’s stay-at-home studio.
Join me for “When Phones Were Fun” Episode 4: a throwback retro tribute to a time when Nokia’s weird phones helped set the tone for a new generation of smartphones![SUBSCRIBE TO MRMOBILE]
This is the fourth in a series of MrMobile episodes exploring the mobile tech world’s most vibrant period in design and experimentation. In “When Phones Were Fun,” Michael Fisher re-reviews cellphones from the golden age of mobile, the decade-long span from the turn of the century to approximately 2009.
When Phones Were Fun: Episode 4 features the Nokia 3650, Nokia 3660, Nokia 7600, Nokia 6820, Nokia 6600, Nokia 7710, and Nokia 7650, all on loan from friend of the channel Martin’s private collection.
