Motorola Gleam brings back old-school flip phone love to Carphone Warehouse
In an age where smartphones completely dominate the landscape, every now and then, we’re able to truly appreciate the advances in cell phone technology whenever we’re greeted with old-school flip handsets.

UK consumers on the other hand have the opportunity of reliving those early days by picking up the Motorola Gleam through Carphone Warehouse. We first heard about the European bound device back in February, but it’s just now starting to make its way to the UK with the acceptable price tag of 49.95 GBP (US$82). With that, you get a stylish clamshell device featuring things like a 2.4” QVGA internal display, external LED matrix display, 2-megapixel camera, FM radio, MP3 support, 3.5mm headset jack, and a microUSB port.

Therefore, if you simply tire using some of today’s modernized smartphones and yearn for something a little bit more laid back, then you just might want to consider picking up the Motorola Gleam for old time sakes.
