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.

The optional pop-up roof tent sleeps two and doubles as a roofbox you can mount on your car. American made.
