The effect of nostalgia, enough for BlackBery?
Over the last few years we have seen how many technology companies have opted for nostalgia to sell more. One of the most prominent cases is that of Nintendo and NES Mini, which will be replenished this summer; a resounding success that Sony wants to imitate. In the mobile telephony sector the clearest example is that of Nokia, which together with its new line of smartphones offers new versions of, for example, the Nokia 3310.
Nostalgia is undoubtedly an important factor when it comes to getting a product, and from BlackBerry seem to be aware. Their current mobiles have Android, but the air and aura they have transmit ideas that are undoubtedly reminiscent of their most successful past, as supported by the design we see in the video above.
