New Launch

The #Nokia6 goes global and #Nokia3 #Nokia5 and #Nokia3310 are announced.#HMDGlobal

Nokia is back and back with a bang along with the old favourite the Nokia 3310.. But… No high end some hoped for the Nokia 8, This is again why do not write rumours  because in some cases its information thats not true and it gets annoying reading daily updates like “this phone will have this” etc.. You get my point.. With the Android market saturated can Nokia come back and reign champions again?? Time will tell and they have a good chance if they get the logistics right and dont follow rules of old such as selected markets only…..

Finally the Nokia 3310 rebooted..

The Nokia 3310 IS BACK.. This time is more modern looking and its got a colour screen to boot and of course it comes with snake, The 3310 will also come in a variety of colours and is set to cost round €49 which is pretty good,this will sell by the truck load when its launched.. Given it has a small 2.4 inch screen thats polarised this will not bother anyone but it will be fun using a phone with such a small screen today, I still have my original Nokia 3310 and booted it up last week and it was fun.. Already I have seen some in the media having harsh words for this device saying that its a throwaway device and that feature phones are dying, This is rubbish.. I would consider spending €10 -€20 a throwaway device not €50..

Feature phones are cheap devices and they mostly suit merging market which is still a thing and a device like this would be great for a back up device or a device to bring with you on a night out or a trip perhaps which is what I often do at times using a cheap phone…  It could be also great for the older generation who want something simple and again it would make a great gift..

 

 

The phone is said to have a months standby time and comes with a micro USB port for charging so you can stop looking for your old chargers now. I have lots if you need any btw.   The 3310 comes in 4 colours and there was no mention of swappable fascias as before which some had hoped for….

 

  • 2G connectivity for calling and texting
  • All-new UI with nods to the original
  • Awesome battery life, with up to 22 hours talk time
