Enda dropped his Nokia in the sink... we remember it here in pictures

Be strong little phone.

ENDA KENNY KNOWS a good thing when he sees it, and boy is a Nokia 6310 a good thing.

Smartphones come and go, but the Nokia will (literally) power on through and is virtually indestructible.

Unless, that is…


Enda has been pictured with iPhones, Sony Ericssons and a multitude of other devices, but the one constant in his life has been his trusty Nokia 6310…

The Nokia wasn't good enough to bring to an audience with the pope though. We're fairly sure it was an iPhone Enda was tinkering with.

As for the fate of the Nokia 6310... have you tried putting it in a bowl of rice Taoiseach?
