The Nokia 8110 old v/s New
Nokia 8110 is a mobile phone first released in 1996 and years after new phone lauched . It was announced on September 9, 1996 as the first of Nokia’s high-end 8000 series of phones. Its distinctive styling was the first example of a ‘slider’ form factor. A sliding cover protected the keypad when being carried in the pocket and extended downwards in use, bringing the microphone closer to the mouth. The action of opening the cover also answered an incoming call. The prominent curvature of the case, particularly when open, earned it the nickname “banana phone”. It was also the first Nokia phone with monochrome graphic LCD.
The phone was designed for the business market and was one of the smallest and lightest (152 grams) phones on the market, but still had better battery life than its predecessor Nokia 2110.
The improved 8110i model, announced in March 1997, was the first phone with the SSMS (Smart SMS) engine. The handsets could be updated OTA (Over The Air) with an intelligent menu structure, which allowed simple information input, input which was sent through a simple structured text message to an MT receiver. This station could interpret information and a structured text message back to the handset. Ring tone receiving by SMS was also part of the smart messaging protocol, so 8110i was also the first mobile phone to support it. Nokia later stopped marketing Smart messaging and concentrated on the upcoming WAP standard, but has not dropped smart messaging support from later phones. Both models were succeeded by Nokia 8810 in 1998.
The phone was famously featured in the science fiction action film The Matrix (1999), for which it was modified featuring spring-loaded mechanism (this later appeared on the Nokia 7110) A new version of 8110 was revived in 2018 as the Nokia 8110 4G, including a new version of the Snake game.
Nokia 8110. This is the phone that was used in the first Matrix movie and everyone can agree that it looked absolutely badass when its sliding cover shot open in the characters’ hands seemingly in sync with their thoughts . It was high-end and cost a bomb, at a time when all mobiles phones were expensive by nature, which made it pretty uncommon in India at least. It was also built like a tank and felt indestructible.

It’s highly plasticky, unlike the original which glided so satisfyingly on its solid metal tracks that you couldn’t resist playing with it.
