The ‘ battery Workhorse’ is back! The Nokia 3310 – a mobile phone that is virtually indestructible is all set to make a comeback in the tech arena very soon.
Originally announced in the year 2000, the legendary phone was discontinued 5 years later in 2005. The Nokia 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 phone users.
The Finnish company Nokia, 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.
