Yes, the Nokia 3310 is back. It’s modern, it’s classic, it’s got Snake and a whole bunch of other features designed to take you on a trip down Nostalgia Alley. But I don’t like it and I doubt any self-respecting 3310 fan would either.
Perhaps one of the most anticipated events at the Mobile World Congress 2017 is Nokia’s. Yes, Nokia, the company that once ruled the mobile phone market. Well, they’re back and they brought with them a whole bunch of nostalgia.
CES is a time for technological showcase. It’s a show where manufacturers from around the world gather and show off what they’re capable of. Although many of these devices don’t actually go on sale until much later in the year, it’s still really interesting to see these concepts and ideas.
However, a recent video has surfaced on YouTube, allegedly revealing that even Nokia had something on display in CES. And that something is their upcoming Android flagship smartphone, the Nokia 8.
Once a great giant, Nokia is making a comeback in 2017 through HMD Global. After introducing a feature phone last month, the Finnish brand has finally introduced a new smartphone that runs on Android with the Nokia 6.
Nokia will be making a comeback next year with HMD Global taking the helm. Before the new year kicks in, the new company has just announced its new phones which isn’t much to shout about.
Nokia is back and they will be introducing their new smartphones in 2017. The iconic mobile company was acquired by Microsoft in 2014 and eventually the name was taken off from its Lumia smartphone lineup in favour of Microsoft.
Along the way, the parent Nokia company had tried to re-enter the device business by introducing the Nokia N1 tablet. There were rumours that Nokia would eventually introduce a smartphone but that didn’t happen.
If it wasn’t clear before it will be now as popular messaging application WhatsApp is stopping support for several older operating systems, including one that had its latest phone launch in Malaysia less than a year ago.

Pick up your phone, yes that one. The one that’s never more than an arm’s reach from you at all times. The one that has probably been in the bathroom with you more times than the toilet roll has. Yes, that one.
Of course, if you’re already reading this on your smartphone then I do apologise for being an idiot by choosing this intro, but I digress.
How does your smartphone feel? And no, I don’t mean this in a metaphorical out-of-body-experience sense, I mean this in a literal sense. We spend every waking moment (some sleeping) of our lives holding onto a little brick that probably weighs no more than a really heavy spoon at a posh restaurant, but most of us put little to no thought into how a device feels in the hand when deciding on a purchase. It’s all about specs and that’s rather unfortunate.

Running on the launch of the PC version, mobile users still are left with no news on when they’ll be getting their version. Though, there is no on the record word about the rolling out date of Windows 10 Mobile, anyone who is interested to know about which Lumia smartphones will be first to get the Windows 10 upgrade.
Nokia has just announced that they will be returning to the smartphone market come next year, despite repeatedly denying that they will be making a comeback.
Brand CEO Rajeev Suri states that they will be finding suitable partners to help produce the devices and they will be using the same strategy that they used for their N1 tablet to get back into the market. Basically what they will be doing is they will design the new products but won’t actually be making the products themselves despite having their branding.
