New Delhi, February 16: Nostalgia for all of us! Nokia 3310, a phone that virtually indestructible is set to make a comeback in the market soon. Yes Nokia 3310 is all set to make a comeback, forget about smashed screens, weak battery life and constant updates. The most loved and missed Nokia 3310 is making a welcome return.Originally announced in 2000 and discontinued 5 years later, the 3310 has remained alive and kicking in collective nostalgia for being the most reliable and long lasting phone, apart from being ‘the first’ for many.
The Finnish company, which itself survived an apocalypse after it failed to survive the smartphone era, is serious about making a comeback with a bang! Soon after announcing a kicker smartphone Nokia 6, the erstwhile market champion is now reportedly looking to remind people why they were number 1.
According to the regularly accurate leaker Evan Blass, a revised 3310 will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of the month.
The new incarnation of the old 3310 will be sold for just €59 (approx. Rs 4200), and so likely be pitched as a reliable second phone to people who fondly remember it the first time around.
The phone has always been available on online sites like Amazon and e-Bay. The subject of online memes comes with 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.
Not to forget games like Snake and ringtones like the Baboon, Groovy Blue and Brave Scotland? They really made our childhood awesome. Of course we also can't forget its limitations; the whole "inbox full" thing was a killer, where you had to delete a text in order to receive an incoming one. The new version by HMD Global is due to be released at the end of February.
