None of that mattered though…you were still pretty cool if you had one…even if the large antenna was sticking out of your bag all the time!
Snake – the original! Who can blank out those days… good old Nokia! Even if they didn’t have one, everyone’s gone hours playing snake on it! I’m not talking about the high tech funky versions, but the old school original block snake! Good times! Remember your high score?
Not just any old nokia…but remember the 3210? Pretty much everyone owned one at some point! It was one of the first phones that didn’t have an antena sticking out of it. This was, hands down the most popular phone of the time! It was also one of the first phones to let you personalize ringtones…cool or what?
