Nokia 3310 in the flesh!
For someone who grew up in the golden age of Nokia phones, the return of the Nokia 3310 is perhaps the most exciting part of our trip here in Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress 2017.
The Nokia 3310 does not only feed the nostalgia but it also represents the simplicity of communication devices like the phone. All we used to do is make calls and send text messages on our phones. We have that amazing skill of being able to compose a text message without looking at the phone. And they last for a whole week without reaching out for a charger. And they were very durable.
There was the occasional gaming but not as hard core as NBA 2k17 — all we needed then was Snake. It was simple yet entertaining and people were really good at it.
So yes, the Nokia 3310 is a phone from the Jurassic era but it’s a phone that everyone will not hesitate to buy just for the heck of it.
Well, I for one just wanted to see how the new Snake is played on the 3310. Still loving it.
The Nokia 3310 is expected to be released by 2nd quarter (April-June of 2017) and will be priced somewhere around Php2,500.
