This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Amazon have this and the new 800 tough up for pre-sale.

Specs are what you would expect from a 2019 feature phone - but some google bits and WhatsApp is good.

  • Classic Flip - With simple to use features, such as big buttons and text, the 2720 Flip is familiar and reliable
  • Built to Last - Excellent durability and a timeless design, whilst compact enough to fit in a pocket or a purse
  • Google Assistant Button - With a push of a button, your Google Assistant can help manage the most popular phone features with just your voice
  • Emergency Button - Pressing the emergency button sends an emergency text message, including your current location, and calls five emergency contacts in your address book
  • Apps and 4G - Preloaded essential apps such as Facebook and WhatsApp, plus 4G and Internet sharing capabilities

Tough 800 looks cool too - both look good for a bit of a 'gadget detox'

Nokia 800 Tough here too

Or you can ignore all the above and get this

Sony Xperia 5 for £699 with some free headphones

I was all for and excited about these old skool remakes. But then I realised I'd need to invest in a sat nav if I ever replaced my smartphone with a feature phone, and possibly need a tab for YouTube and a Bluetooth keyboard.

Not cheap is it?!


Snake development costs, somebody has to pay for them
Nokia might be reviving these old school designs, but some of their feature phones from the noughties can still be bought from sellers on eBay, and they usually have better specs than these new versions!

At least WhatsApp works on these new phones, though.

Eh, for a few quid more you can get an Android based Nokia and download all the apps YOU want.
Or get a Doro.

Nokia can't be charging this price for long, it's bound to fail if they do.

The flip is aimed at the baby boomer generation, with the emergency button as per Doro's phone range.
£40 over and above the Doro for what? Facebook and Whatsapp on the move? Nah, the crusties won't pay that.

What? KaiOs actually, which is part funded by Google. And nothing with MS. Actually, it's nothing much to do with Nokia either.

It’s a 4G phone running KaiOS, an operating system that introduces smart features to dumbphones. That includes modern-day amenities like Google Maps, Google Assistant, WhatsApp, and even YouTube. There’s a 1.3-inch screen on the front so you can see notifications, and flip it open and you’re greeted to a 2.8-inch main screen — and yes, you can flip it shut to end a call.

Software-wise, it runs KaiOS, a feature-filled feature phone operating system that adds modern amenities like Google, Google Maps, WhatsApp, YouTube, Facebook, and Google Assistant integration.

Iirc, KaiOS is actually a spin off from the Firefox OS - in which case I assume a lot of the apps are possibly HTML5 apps, which tie in nicely with a 4G handset.
For £80..00 you can so much more. It will not be long before you can pick this up around £ 20.00 mark

So really all that was needed to say was "it's a typo", & wrong information had been added

While we could have said "it's a typo", when I replied I didn't know what you'd read.

Adding the details of KaiOS is helpful for others who read the comments, and may not know what it is.
This is the best of the revamped Nokia retrophones so far. The white looks particularly good, I think. 38503730-Hnq6L.jpg
£89.99 pre-order on clove.co.uk so this is actually a good price if you want one. Whether it's worth it or not is another matter but at the moment this is a deal of sorts?
