A new 80-style retro mobile phone has been launched by Carphone Warehouse, known simply as The Brick.
The device harks back to the long-forgotten generation of mobile phones and is on sale for £50 from the firm.
It boasts a standby battery life of up to one month and comes with the once-popular game Snake, which picked up a following when it appeared on Nokia devices in 1998.
The device can be connected to a modern smartphone via Bluetooth allowing it to make and receive text messages and calls, however it can operate as a standard phone on its own.
It comes with a 2G connection, a built in LED torch and colour screen. The multifunctional device can also be used as a loudspeaker to play the music stored on a smartphone.
For the first two weeks of sale the device will only be available in Carphone Warehouse stores, with plans to extend its reach in the future.
