Yesterday it was the Blackberry KeyONE, and today it’s the Nokia 3310. Seems it’s the era for comebacks.
Remember the Nokia 3310? I do! This was waaaay before the iPhone, Samsungs and even HTCs. When it was first introduced in 2000, the phone sold more than 120 million copies! Now the 3310 is making a nostalgic return in the form of a more modern variant, thanks to Nokia-branded phone maker HMD.
The new Nokia 3310 takes the iconic silhouette of the original and reimagines it for 2017. The custom designed user interface brings a fresh look to a classic, whilst the 2.4” polarized and curved screen window makes for better readability in sunlight.
With the new Nokia 3310, you can actually leave your home without a charger. It comes with a long-lasting battery, so you can talk all day, or leave the phone on standby for up to a month. When needed, a Micro-USB port makes charging simple.
