Shut up and take my money
If you're tempted, the handset will be available in March. Bus tickets and c are sold separately.
Could someone explain to a poor Canadian what the "c" in "and c" refers to? Probably a party drug reference, I'd guess, but I don't know the lingo.
Oddly enough, I still have my Nokia 5130, the thicker, cheaper version of the 5310. It was my daily driver from 2009-2010, and it's been a solid backup performer/emergency car phone since. The battery just died in January via overcharge, and I got a replacement Feb 2nd. Instructions said to charge it up and let it run down full three times. I've done so, having charged it on Feb 2nd, Feb 17th, March 2nd, and now... today.
Yes, two weeks plus a day or three on a charge. Ah, the good old days.
The only real complaint was that the PC/Phone software is, by modern standards pretty horrific. And as I recall, it could only take 1GB or 2GB microSD cards; 4GB or larger aren't recognized. So a 32GB capacity would be welcomed.
As I recall, it happily supported Bluetooth, but no wifi. There wasn't much in the S40 that needed the net back then, to be honest. This was not a phone to email or browse on. And there was no GPS for similar reasons.
The camera was tolerable for car accident photos, but little else (there was a green tinge on everything), but it ran for weeks on a charge, got reception when no other mobile would, matched MP3 players that cost more than the phone did, and being Nokia, a friend's daughter put hers in the wash cycle and was annoyed that the 5 key was "a bit fiddly" after the wash, but that was about it.
I can definitely see a market for this.
