Nokia 1680 Classic feature phone turned into a Linux-based PC

A hardware hacker named Remu NotMoe has turned a Nokia 1680 Classic feature phone into a Linux-based PC.

The Nokia 1680 Classic debuted in 2008. The name of the hacker project Remu Notmore was Notkia. To implement this, a special printed circuit board with a processor, memory and other components was created. The keyboard is original.

The board has a 1GHz single-core MIPS Ingenic X100E processor, 64MB RAM, 32MB NOR flash and 4GB SLC NAND flash.

The display is a 2-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels, although it has been shown to be too large for the body. As a result, the apparent screen resolution is 220 x 280 pixels – the edges are simply not visible. The device is running Linux.

Natakia can be used as a computer, walkie-talkie or modem. But Natakia does not know how to call.

The Nokia 1680 Classic is a simple push-button mobile phone that was released in 2008, when smartphones were just beginning to appear. It supports calling, receiving and sending SMS, but only on 2G mobile networks. However, under the pseudonym Remu Notmo, a hardware hacker and enthusiast was able to turn a simple dialer into a full-fledged Linux PC. He called the project Natkia.

To do this, he created a special printed circuit board with a processor, memory and other components. But the keyboard is completely original. The board has a 1GHz single-core MIPS Ingenic X100E processor, 64MB RAM, 32MB NOR flash and 4GB SLC NAND flash.
