Flip phones on the comeback trail?

MWEB TechnoZone writes: "Given the interconnectivity of the world today, it usually follows that trends – particularly tech trends – originating in the United States or Europe, reach South African shores sooner rather than later. So it is with some interest that one looks at one looks at a new, and somewhat unusual, trend currently sweeping the West, and whether or not South Africans will pick up on this as they have so many others in the past. Just as music albums are again being released on vinyl, so it appears that the flip phone is making a serious comeback – and for any number of reasons."

I wouldn't mind if they updated the phone used in The Matrix. That was one kick a $ $ phone

Yeah, I think that was a concept of the Nokia 7110. I had this phone, it was a pretty good/solid phone back in the day. http://mobilesretro.com/wp-...

I actually saw a guy rocking an old school flip phone the other day and I got a bit of nostalgia... I won't lie.

My first cell phone was a flip. Loved it!

mine was too - old Motorolla. It was kind of cool to flip open the phone to answer....very dramatic.

Not a fan. I like the built-in screen protection though.
