The Nokia 3310 is finally out following some massive hype and talk about one of the all-time best sellers. With Nokia plotting a comeback into the mobile device industry, they had to create a clever entry strategy. A strategy that would bring to them relevance and popularity after they fell off the grid a few years back.
Why we all love the Nokia 3310
Most kids that did not make it on time to see the Nokia 3310 own the world might never get to understand what the current hype is about. Well here are a few reasons why the Nokia 3310 is the undisputed king of all mobile phones in history:
The 3310 was the kind of phone which you would take with you on a weekend trip and deliberately ‘forget the charger’ at home. The Nokia literally had endless battery life. The new device does not seem to be far away from the great grandmaster of all mobile phones in terms of battery life, well on paper at least.
Nicknamed the ‘brick,’ the Nokia 3310 was one of the toughest devices you could ever come across. You could literally attack someone with you ‘brick’ phone, pick it up and call the ambulance for them. Let us hope nothing changes drastically in this aspect with the all new device.
For all those that have never played snake, make sure you get yourself a 3310 and enjoy the Angry birds of the early 2000s. The simple game it was, but it kept us entertained like no other.
