The legendary computer brand, Commodore, is back with a smartphone that will be available initially  in Poland, Germany, France and Italy, wired.com reported.

The smartphone, named PET, runs a custom version of Android 5.0 Lollipop and two preinstalled emulators so that owners can enjoy old C64 and Amiga games.

The Commodore PET is to be launched later this week in two different versions, a light one with 16 GB of storage costing around $300, and a regular one with 32 GB, priced at around $365.

“It’s an inarguably niche device, but proves that technological nostalgia is an incredible—and very cool—thing,” wired. com assessed.

Commodore was a leader in personal computers in the mid-1980s. After, it went bankrupt in 1994, the brand saw several fuzzy changes of trademark ownership over the years.
