Nokia 105 2017


I feel like time has been reversed when oems & manufacturers & the whole mobile industry was only innovating on the hardware front. flip slide flaps convertible phone were selling in the markets, no one gives a damn for OSes & softwares, whole thing turned into rectangular box since apple launched iPhone in 2007


There were always rectangular touch screen phone b4 the 1st iPhone like Motorola Moto Ming, palm etc. Its just that Apple marketed their 1st iPhone so well that people started to look forward to it. Moto Ming was way ahead of its time and came with a pen/stylus and a transparent flap where the earpiece was.


agreed,I had it in 2007,at that time touchscreen phones were hard to find in peoples hand.It was the time when Nokia was ruling.


Even before Moto ting ming, there were Microsoft full touch phones with styles were in the market.
