Nokia 8110

The Nokia 8110, known affectionately as the banana phone, was the height of cool in the 90s. This was largely thanks to its appearance in the slick action flick "The Matrix" and the fun slidey thing you could do with the keypad cover. 

More than 20 years later, the 8110 is finally making a return.

First, it's banana yellow. Straightaway that's a huge improvement over the original version (although a black option is still available). Then you've got an app store, 4G connectivity, a camera and 20 days of standby battery life. 

The phone will be available in May and will cost around 79 euros (approximately £79, $97, AU$125).

Unlike a real banana, the Nokia 8110 banana phone has a camera on the back.

Wait, where'd my phone go again? All I'm seeing is a bowl of fruit with a delicious looking banana in it.

The phone has a headphone jack, which is great for listening to your favourite tunes, like anything by Bananarama.

Things a banana can do that this phone cannot: provide a good source of potassium.
