Nokia Make it Official: The 3310 Returns

Nokia have officially unveiled the rebirth of the Nokia 3310.

The classic handset was recently revealed to be making a return, but had not been made official by Nokia – until today’s Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona.

12 years on since the original classic phone was phased out, Nokia have decided to embrace nostalgia and bring back what many, to this day, deem the world’s most reliable phone. Coming with a whopping 2MB camera and relying on 2.5G internet connectivity – none of that fancy 3G or 4G connection here – and topped off with a blistering 2.4″ QVGA display, the new and improved version captures all the charm of the original and adds sprinkles of modernism.

The coup-de-grace of the handset is the staggering battery life on offer, with 22 maximum hours talk time and an incredible 31 days of maximum standby time.

It also has FM radio and an MP3 player, and will be available in four colours; Warm Red, Dark Blue, Yellow and Grey.

And yes, Snake comes pre-loaded.

A release date for the handset has not yet been announced, and it will likely set you back around £50.
