Punkt MP02: the $350 Android based, Blackberry hardened minimalist phone

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/10/09/punkt_mp02/

 

 

As it just does calls and e-mail, surely someone would be better off with the Nokia  8110 4G?

Doesn't seem to do email but agreed, the Nokia 8110 4G is better value by far for doing exactly the same thing. Can't see it being too popular in corporate environments either even though it seems ideal for security, the cost is far too high for what it is offering. Not saying its bad thing but would require a corporate cultural change in the way companies use phones for email etc and thats not going to happen in the near future when they're invested in devices that do so much more (and the backend infrastructure is key).

Yep, Airplane is a fantastic film (as was the Naked Gun trilogy), I did see the late Leslie Nielsen in a straight part and I kept expecting him to do or say something insanely funny.

@Anonymous the late Leslie Nielsen started out as a 'straight' actor many years ago mainly on TV, though he did appear in films as well. But it was the Naked Gun franchise plus Airplane that gave his career a boost and made him a household name. He was a very funny guy.
