Nokia is relaunching (rebranding? re-releasing?) their popular 3310 model phone. A phone lauded for it’s durability and super strength powers is getting an upgrade for 2017. Although not quite up to typical smart phone standards (the phone will have a color screen and camera, but will not have modern features like a touch screen or 3G), the phone is being met with positive excitement.
It definitely would take an icon to reboot a device like the 3310, and Nokia is in an interesting position to provide a phone that will play on users nostalgia and appreciation for durability. This device might even spark an uprising to embrace the simplicity of an affordable and useful “dumb phone”. In a day and age where the line blurs between phone and “device that does more things than actually call people” having an actual phone in the marketplace could be a breath of fresh air.
Oh, and I hate that I even have to mention this but.
YES IT WILL HAVE SNAKE!!!
