In late 2017, Nokia re-released their iconic 3310 dumbphone from the turn of the millenium. It ran the Java based Smart Feature OS and carried an Opera Mini browser, FM radio, voice recorder and 2 MP camera. with support for 3G. Cheap, durable with a high battery life and classic form factor, it sold out in multiple markets.
I took an interest in the phone for its web browser, which I estimated would not be much less effective at browsing the web than lynx, providing most app functionality and overally a likely a much more pleasant experience than a smartphone. This turned out true.
