HMD was an instant hit two years ago at the Mobile World Congress. This rapid increase is due to a number of important factors: price, well-known branding, and years of commitment to the feature phone predecessor.
Those who have been following the industry for some time will remember that the original Nokia phone did not take the smartphone lifestyle very quickly. However, the company maintained its market share by focusing on the lower end of the market. HMD has repeatedly adopted this category by republishing some well-known designs and developing new non-smartphones.
While the Nokia 210 shares a number with the QWERTY-sporty Asha, the Nokia 210 is more than BlackBerry. The palm-sized phone has a small screen surrounded by a thick case and some large buttons. The handset can access the Internet via Opera Mini, allowing users to enjoy a lightweight social network.
And yes, it's running in line.
HMD promises an impressive month of battery life, packaged in a handset that should cost around 30 euros.
