World’s ‘most reliable’ phone: Nokia 3310 resurrected
Nokia will relaunch the 3310, perhaps the most beloved and strongest phone in history.
The phone, originally launched in 2000 and in many respects of the modern era of mobile telephony, will be sold as a way to gain a large amount of battery in an almost indestructible body.
The new incarnation of the old 3310 will sell for only € 59 ($ A81), and is likely to be released as a reliable second phone for people who remember the first time.
It will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress later this month, according to tracer Evan Blass, who first revealed details.
It is still possible to buy on Amazon 3310, but only by the market and not directly from the company itself.
The Amazon list describes a number of features, including a clock, a calculator, the ability to store up to ten reminders and four games: Snake II, Pairs II, Space Impact and Bantumi.
Snake was so dear that it is currently available to users of iPhone, Android and Windows phones to download.
This collection highlights led to the brand as the strongest and most durable phone ever created. Reputation was allowed to become the star of hundreds of memes, and even made people to crush in a hydraulic press.
Nokia has struggled to make its mark in the era of smartphones and ended up being sold to Microsoft. But since then it has focused on success by making new versions of the old phones, including the Nokia 215, which costs $ 29 and lasts for 29 days.
Phones manufactured under the Nokia brand are now sold by Global HMD, a Finnish company that bought the rights to the name. HMD unveil other new mobile phones – Nokia 3, 5 and 6 – in the same MWC event.
