Hackers seem to be on a buying spree for Nokia 1100 phones, Nokia has no idea why
PC World reports Nokia has stated they are unaware of the fact the price of their obsolete device has gone so far up. The company also said in e-mailed statement that they “…have not identified any phone software problem that would allow alleged use cases”.
Whether Nokia testers have missed something remains to be seen as security analysts are trying to acquire a Bochum-made Nokia 1100 to test their own theories. Until then you can tell us your opinion. Can you think of any legal reason as to why someone would be willing to shell out €20,000 on an obsolete device, given its strongest selling point used to be that it could be used as a flashlight?
