As more networks are shutting down their 2G networks, the throwback Nokia 3310 phone is becoming less useful in more places. Even if you do get 2G connectivity, browsing on GPRS (without EDGE) is painfully slow in this day and age.
To ensure that the Nokia 3310 stays relevant for those who want it, HMD Global has just announced a 3G version and it even comes with several new colours.
The Nokia 3310 (2017) has finally arrived in Malaysia and it will go on sale on the first week of June. For those who prefer to get it online with free delivery, you can place a pre-order today through 11street.
Everyone’s favourite feature phone, the Nokia 3310 is back and it’s now available in Malaysia. The throwback device was announced a few months ago at MWC 2017 and you can have it as early as next week.
Oh, and there’s also information on the Nokia 3310‘s local pricing too.
At the Mobile World Congress this year, Nokia managed to grab the attention of consumers with the announcement of the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and the Nokia 6, along with the revamped Nokia 3310. Details are now being rumoured of a top of the line device that could be on sale by the end of this year.
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.
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.

Nokia is known for 2 things – An awesome camera and durable phones associated with iconic Nokia 3310. Today is a very special day and they have announced the 3310 PureView, marrying trusted reliability with their epic 41MP PureView camera.
The 3310 PureView retains as much of the design of its former 3310 but underneath it runs on a newer Windows Phone platform. The typical capacitive buttons for Windows Phone have been cleverly moved onto the physical buttons of old with minor tweaks. The screen is obviously bigger with a 3″ touch screen display with ClearDiamond technology pushing a respectable 720p HD resolution. Powering the device is a dual-core 1.5GHz processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage with microSD expansion slot.
The biggest disappointment is the lack of 4G LTE and probably due to mass pressure, Nokia says that they will be releasing a 4G version sometime later. To relive your nostalgic years, Nokia is bundling games such as Snake II, Pairs II and Space Impact with the 3310 PureView. In addition, the 3310 PureView also lets you compose original monophonic ringtones as well.
Exactly a year ago, DiGi had offered pre-orders for classic phones like the Nokia 3310 and Motorola StarTAC.

Having a mobile phone is a status symbol and it is more apparent 10-15 years ago, a time when not many people could afford one. These days, a mobile phone is a necessity and no longer a flashy fashion accessory that it used to be.
Unless you have a tens of thousands of ringgit to spare, DiGi now lets you stand out from the crowd with its new Vintage Phone Collection from RM1,499. Own a piece of history with the indestructible Nokia 3310, the flip phone crazed Motorola StarTAC or the iconic Ericsson SH888. These rare mobile phones are bundled with RM148 DG SmartPlan Classic.
