The NYPD has to scrap the 36,000 smartphones it gave cops over the past two years because they're already obsolete and can't be upgraded, The Post has learned.

The city bought Microsoft-based Nokia smartphones as part of a $160 million NYPD Mobility Initiative that Mayor Bill de Blasio touted as "a huge step into the 21st century".

In 2014. They bought these in 2014.

In 2014.

Nokia indeed seems to be a good choice. Nokia 3 is supposed to cost around the same as Lumia 640 two years ago (around 150 euro) and HMD promises at least 2 years of security updates.

Thanks for letting me know.
