London: A report by the Conflict Armament Research (CAR), a weapons monitoring group, has revealed that the entry-level Nokia 105 is a favourite among Islamic State terrorists building remote-controlled explosive devices in Iraq.
Microsoft, which now makes Nokia phones, promotes Nokia 105 for its durability and long battery life.
It is available for as low as $30 in the United States.
CAR director of operations Jonah Leff told NBC that though the model does not have any features that aid bomb-making, yet its consistency has made it a favourite among ISIS bomb-makers.
“These people have streamlined the industry of bomb-making with this particular phone,” said Leff.
