6210 was my first cell phone, it was my mom's old one.

And you're right, it was perfect. I remember carrying it and a digital camera with a whopping 32 mb memory card that was the size of the wall charger I use now. :D

People were impressed that the screen lit up.

I was thinking of buying a 3310 when I first heard about the new release on the radio a while back. Apparently they've upgraded Snake which kinda seals it for me.

No idea why they'd call it a "brick". I was around when phones were literally bigger than bricks.

I think the idea is novel at best, it's cheap enough at $40-$50US but the tiny 2.4" screen will not be enough for the demands of today's handset users. Still, it would make a great back-up phone and a great travel phone.

at least the screen wont break as much my daughters iphone.

When your kids misbehave take away their iphone and give them the brick. No social media and can easy use as a defencive weapon  when out and about
