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.

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.

Tom Dickson and his mighty Blendtec blender has destroyed dozens of new shiny devices in his Will it Blend? series. So how about the “indestructible” Nokia 3310? Watch the video to find out. As pointed out by some video commenters, the blendtec container appears to have some crack lines, indicating that the Nokia 3310 is a tough nut to
