The most durable model in the history of mobile phones – Nokia 3310 is coming back to hit the cell phone industry like a boss. Nokia will re-launch the 3310 at Mobile World Congress (MWC) later this month.
The new embodiment of this phone will be sold for just €59 (Rs. 4100 approx). It is still possible to buy 3310 on Amazon, though only through its marketplace and not directly from the company itself.
The Amazon listing describes a range of features, including a clock, calculator, the ability to store up to ten reminders and four games: Pairs II, Snake II, Space Impact, and Bantumi. Nokia struggled to bring its brand into the smartphone era and ended up being sold to Microsoft.
The Nokia 3310 is a GSM Mobile Phone announced on September 1, 2000. The phone sold extremely well, being one of the most successful phones with 126 million units sold worldwide. Several alternatives of the 3310 have been released, including the Nokia 3315, 3320, 3330, 3350, 3360, 3390 and 3395.
In November 2015, Nokia 3310 was chosen as one of the first three ‘National Emojis’ for Finland. The emoji is referred as ‘The Unbreakable’ as the phone was known for its toughness. To mark the frame of the device, Finland, the country in which the phone was designed and manufactured has taken this decision.
On 14th February 2017, it was reported that a modernized version of the 3310 would be unveiled at the 2017 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona with the price point of 59 euros.
