It’s pretty dumb that most phone batteries last about 1 day. That’s definitely not the case with this new and decidedly old school Nokia. Its battery will maintain power for up to 36 days in standby mode. The no-frills phone features a classic 9-button keypad & built-in fm radio but also a color video screen & a Micro SD slot for adding up to 32G of storage. Standard features like video and music playback are also included. Fans of lo-fi will surely hope to see this released in the U.S., but for now it will be made available in emerging markets.

Could Amazon build a better phone for their most engaged customers? It kinda looks that way. They launched Fire Phone today. It’s a 3D smartphone with features like gesture control scrolling & an image stabilizing 13-megapixel camera. But really, it’s a powerful little consumption device optimized for watching movies & TV shows, reading books, and buying more stuff at Amazon.
