A Mobile Phone For The Masses

Pasay City, Philippines (PressExposure) November 06, 2009 -- Other than the popular Nseries mobile phones of Nokia, there is still one model of Nokia mobile phones that is more widely used than the Nseries. These are the Nokia 3310. The Nokia 3310s is one of the most popular types of Cellular Philippine Phone [http://www.expressregalo.com/category.aspx?scid=97&cid=24] in the past, but until today, the phone is still very popular, particularly for those that cannot afford a mobile phone such as that of Nokia's Nseries models. So what made it popular in the Philippines?

The one thing that made the Nokia 3310s popular is because of its widespread as well as its cheap price. Different stores in the Philippines, particularly in Tianges, a Nokia 3310 can be easily found in a cellular phone repair shop. Along with its price, which currently ranges from 400-600 Philippine Pesos, its popularity is also because of its wide versions of 3310s. Other than the 3310s, theres also the Nokia 3315, 3320, 3330, 3350, 3360, 3390 and 3395.

But other than the 3310 Cellular Philippine Phone [http://www.expressregalo.com/category.aspx?scid=97&cid=24], Nokia have also released another mobile phone, which is similar to that of 3310s, but are more compact. The Nokia 1100 (and a closely-related variant, the Nokia 1101) is a durable and very simple GSM mobile phone produced by Nokia with a 96 x 65 monochrome screen. It is targeted towards developing countries and users who do not require advanced features beyond making calls and SMS text messages, alarm clock, reminders, etc.

The 1100 is similar to the now discontinued 5110/3210/3310 models that were among the most popular cell phones in the world a few years ago before handsets developed several new features such as cameras, polyphonic ringtones and colour screens. Over 200 million Nokia 1100 cellphones have been sold since its launch in late 2003, making it the world's best selling Cellular Philippine Phone [http://www.expressregalo.com/category.aspx?scid=97&cid=24], not only in the Philippines, but across the world.

However, as of early 2009, it has been in the news due to a firmware flaw in a batch of phones that were manufactured in a plant in Bochum, Germany. The phone can be programmed to receive messages directed to a different phone number, thus receiving sensitive bank or other data. This flaw was brought to authorities' attention after some phones were sold for over US$32,000 . There is only one source, Ultrascan, that all these articles fall back to.
