Nokia 8110 is a banana-shaped mobile phone with an exterior antenna and a sliding cover ,which opens and closes with a satisfying 'click', as the commercial says. It comes with a black and gray coloring, but there is a wide range of coloured covers. (My 8110 has a lightning-pattern covers and a self made brass antenna!) The 8110 was used in Matrix, with a special cover that kinda shoots out by pressing a button on the side. These days it's hard to find anyone who still uses 8110, because of it's size and the fact that it's so old. (The first eightyone-tens were made about 5 years ago. It's not cool to use a phone which is over two years old.) It's functions aren't that off-date though, at least not the improved 8110i model.
