The Nokia 3310 is Back, But There’s a Catch

Three smartphones were announced – the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3.

Working down in price and features the three new phones are low to mid-range products starting from AUD$199 with the Nokia 3. The Nokia 5 has a slightly larger screen than the 5inch 3, measuring at 5.2inches and will retail around AUD$260. The Nokia 6 is the flagship model with a 5.5-inch screen and will come in at around AUD$315.

The model getting all the kids excited however was the redesigned Nokia 3310. The new phone features a tiny 2.4-inch, 240×320 screen, 2-megapixel camera, new snake, will be available in white, blue, red, and yellow and will sell for 49€ (AUD$68 AUD). Amazingly the new unit boasts a 31-day battery when in standby mode, or 22 hours of talk time, but it’s going to be redundant in Australia by the end of the year.

The Nokia 3310 utilise “2G connectivity for calling and texting”, and while Optus and Vodafone still have 2G networks, Optus shuts its down in April, and Vodafone in September, so this little slice of nostalgia will be useless in Australia rather quickly.

Won’t stop me picking up one while I’m travelling, though!
