Looks like Nokia is attempting to revive the "classic" mobile phone, and now has at least 3 new models available in the last few months, including a flip phone...

Most of the phones run KaiOS (a successor to Mozillia's Firefox OS), and comes with it's own app store. Only a few apps are available, but covers what most people would need...

In other news Motorola Razr...

I never had those type of phones. Work provided the BlackBerry devices, starting with one that had a crude, gray LCD and then progressing to later models until the iPhone destroyed the BlackBerry.

The folding screen is kind of interesting. But $1500 is a heavy early adapters tax for sure.
