There seems to be a trend among phone manufacturers of going back to the simple cellphones of the late 1990s/early 2000s. Nokia - one of the leading names in 'dumb phone' tech of yesteryear - is bringing back one of their iconic models, the 8810. Best known as being the phone that Neo uses in the 1999 hit The Matrix, the 'banana phone' is aimed at people looking to ditch the endless clutters and distractions of modern apps for a simple phone that can just call and text. The 8810 will have a battery that can last 25 days, work on 4G networks and even include the classic hit Snake for when you need to look busy out in public. They plan to start shipping later this year.
