Flip phones lost out in terms of trends a few years ago, but as with most things it has gone circular and the flip phone is once again at the top of everyone’s list of must haves.
Boasting excellent durability and style to match, the Nokia 2720 Flip is a feature phone built to last. With the reintroduction of such a classic phone and design, we thought it would be interesting to take a look at some of the history of the flip phone to see where it hit its peak in popularity.
The very first flip phone was created in 1996, although it took inspiration from a concept introduced in 1989. The classic clamshell design phone featured SMS text messages, vibrate alerts and a back-up battery. It became an instant success and flip phones quickly became the must have fashion accessory of the end of the decade.
Many iterations of the flip phone were released as everyone attempted to get in on the trend and flip phones saw their popularity stretch across a decade. In the early-2000s, the flip phone was seen as cooler and more stylish than its predecessors. So much so, in fact, that the flip phone was the last must-have phone before the smartphones arrived in the mid-2000s.
The trend of flip phones died down around 2010 and now, almost a decade later they are back and the Nokia 2720 flip is leading the pack. Stylish, functional and affordable. It’s got everything you remember about classic flip phones and it’s made for the 21st century.
