Of course it’s an April Fools’ joke :), but it makes us longing for the times when the phones lasted a week on a charge, and there weren’t hundreds of thousands of game titles to choose from, so those Snake sessions turned oh-so-intense. We are certain Nokia would have some customers for this thing, if it manages to indeed pull it off, though we doubt it will last as long on a charge as its original inspiration.
