Sales of mobile phones without internet connectivity rose by 5 per cent last year, according to research out of the UK.

Geoff Quattromani, tech commentator told Tom Elliott the rise in sales of ‘dumb phones’ comes as older consumers who are using mobile phones look for simpler options.

“If we think back maybe 10 years ago, we had a Nokia 3210, it actually had physical numbers on the front, it had a smaller screen but it had a week of battery life too,” Geoff said.

“There are so many people out there who really just want to make calls.

“Companies are starting to target that market and we’re taking less than $100.”
