Nokia 3310, The Most Reliable Phone Made Ever is Coming Back

0

According to an article on The Next Web, Nokia 3310 is coming back!

Nokia Mobile users of a certain age have been getting very excited on social media about the return of this sturdy, reliable handset. If you were in the market for a new phone in the year 2000, then the 3310 may have been on your wish-list.

Although Nokia hasn’t manufactured the phone in years, there’s still a fondness for the device, and it remains to be sold through third-party channels, like Amazon Marketplace and eBay

The Amazon listing describes a range of features, including a clock, calculator, the ability to store up to ten reminders and four games: Snake II, Pairs II, Space Impact, and Bantumi.

Snake was so well-loved that it’s currently available for iPhone, Android and Windows phone users to download.

As much as the phone render looks cool with a dash of Android built-in, don’t fall for these tricks just yet. There has been no official teaser from Nokia on just what the new 3310 will look like — no image leaks, no specs or features confirmation. Nothing yet.

Known primarily for its plentiful battery life and nearly indestructible build, the 3310 was released at the turn of the millennium as a replacement to the also-popular 3210.

Nokia struggled to bring its brand into the smartphone era and ended up being sold to Microsoft. But since then it has targeted success by making new versions of old phones, including the Nokia 215.

HMD Global Oy, the Finnish manufacturer with exclusive rights to market phones under the storied Nokia brand, is planning to announce four such handsets at Mobile World Congress  in Barcelona later this month.

Phones made under the Nokia brand are now sold by HMD Global, a Finnish company that bought the rights to the name. HMD will reveal other new mobiles – the Nokia 3, 5 and 6 – at the same MWC event.
