Retro is cool: Basic Nokia 3310 3G launches in the US for $59.99


US
consumers interested in purchasing the Nokia 3310 3G (a modern retake on the
classic Nokia 3310 released way back in 2000) can now pre-order the phone through
Best Buy. Priced at $59.99, the Nokia 3310 3G is a dual SIM handset
that’s compatible with carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile. It obviously
doesn’t have LTE, so 3G is the best you can get out of the device in terms of
cellular connectivity.  

 

The Nokia 3310 3G offers a solid body, a small 2.4-inch
screen with 240 x 320 pixels, a retro UI, and a 2 MP camera with LED flash. It
comes pre-installed with the legendary …


European carrier confirms 3G Nokia 3310 arrives in late September or early October

There have been a couple of reports claiming HMD plans to launch a 3G version of the Nokia 3310, the feature phone that made its debut at MWC 2017 early this year, but nothing official transpired until recently.

It appears that an Irish carrier has just confirmed that it will offer the 3G Nokia 3310 starting later this year. The feature phone should be available at Three Ireland in late September or early October, but info about its price tag has yet to emerge.

Last month, a 3G version of the Nokia 3310 (model number TA-1036) was spotted at FCC (Federal Communications …

There's a luxury "Trump-Putin" edition of the new Nokia 3310 and you can have it for "only" $2,500

The G20 summit that commences today in the German city of Hamburg has attracted a lot of attention. The fact that it is a two-day gathering of the world’s top economies is enough of its own, but the massive protests that tend to occur during such events are what really gets the media ticking. 

Looking to capitalize on all of this commotion, Russian phone customizer Caviar has decided to commemorate the occasion in a very special way. The company that brought you the iPhone 6s Pokemon GO Edition and various other blinged-up versions of contemporary smartphones has …

New Nokia 3310 retail box lets you see the phone in all its glory

The new Nokia 3310 is a rather successful product. It can be safely labeled as the only handset in the feature phone category that has managed to generate any buzz in recent years, and current Nokia manufacturer HMD Global can certainly be pleased with the results achieved by the nostalgia-inducing so device far. 

Still, maintaining adequate sales figures over a prolonged period can be challenging, which is why HMD has resorted to a neat little marketing trick. You can now get the 2017 iteration of the legendary Nokia 3310 in an all-new retail …

Nokia 3310 Review

Introduction
The famed Nokia 3310 is back, and the hype around it is real. While some are eager to get their hands on this feature phone, others are skeptical that HMD will deliver on its promises of a better 3310.

We here at PhoneArena don’t have the habit of reviewing feature phones, especially in such a low price range (between $60 and $70 in Europe), but for the successor of one of the most iconic devices in history, we had to make an exception. So, let’s get straight into it.

The U.S. version of Nokia 3310 works on T-Mobile's network only

 Nokia 3310, the feature phone that will probably beat all the other Nokia-branded smartphones announced by HMD Global earlier this year when it comes to the number of units sold, will be launched in the United States by the end of the month.

Introduced as a 2G feature phone that supports GSM networks only, HMD promised to work with carriers in the United States in order to find a solution to the issue. Unfortunately for Nokia fans, EDGE coverage on GSM networks is a bit of a problem in the U.S.

As such, the Nokia 3310 might only work on T-Mobile. The Federal Communications …

This $12 clone of the Nokia 3310 looks almost convincing until you realize the terribleness of it

Smartphone clone artists never cease to amaze us. They can build a visually convincing replica of almost any upcoming phone just by looking at some blurry images. They can also re-build a $50 phone, the Nokia 3310, and sell it for $12. That’s what, two movie tickets? One expensive movie ticket? You get the point – it’s mighty cheap.

Such is the case with Indian manufacturer Darago, whose Nokia 3310 cover version almost looks like the real thing… until you put it by the original side and have a gander at the awful, awful display. Whereas the new Nokia 3310 has …

UK retailer Clove stopped pre-orders for the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3310 at HMD's request

Yesterday, we told you that UK retailer Clove had stopped accepting pre-orders for the Nokia 3310 feature phone, and had resumed taking pre-registrations. While a pre-order reserves a phone for the consumer who puts down money to make sure that a unit is held for him/her at launch, a pre-registration simply alerts the consumer via email when pre-orders are starting. Yesterday, there was concern by some Clove customers that  pre-orders were canceled, although that doesn’t seem to be the case.

An email sent out by Clove to customers today states that the pre-order option was taken down, …

Nokia 3310 pre-orders canceled by Clove UK?

Late last month, the refreshed Nokia 3310 feature phone was made available for pre-orders from Clove UK. Reservations were being taken for the phone in a variety of colors including Warm Red, Dark Blue, Yellow, and Grey. Priced at the equivalent of $67 USD pre-tax, all of the units were to be released in the middle of next month. But as you can see from the accompanying screenshot, something has changed at Clove. Instead of being labeled pre-order, you can now only pre-register your intention to reserve the handset when that option becomes available once more.

The original Nokia 3310 has …
