Nokia got it right first time 18 December 2010

Posted by cooperatoby in Uncategorized.

I dug out my original mobile phone the other day, a Nokia 2210 from Orange, to give to the asylum seekers held at Zaventem airport. I hope it still works, as it’s about 12 years old. Slipping it out of its cover I noticed how finely sculpted it is: its bulging upper half fits the palm of the hand perfectly, much better than its successors. And the buttons are the size of normal fingers, too. They couldn’t really improve on that initial design.
