Nokia are re-launching the 3310 for just €59

Found 14th Feb 2017
Checks date, nope not April Fools but just Nokia feeling the love approx 17 years after the original release - Time to get your snake on?

The new incarnation of the old 3310 will be sold for just €59, and so likely be pitched as a reliable second phone to people who fondly remember it the first time around. It will be revealed at Mobile World Congress later this month

Dad is going to be over the moon
Never be as good as the original battery life will be crap amongst other things
3210 had even better build quality!
Seems pricey - I bought a Nokia 105 for £20 not long ago to fulfil the same USP.
What resolution is the camera? And does it support Snapchat?

the 3310 was horrible in comparison to the 3210
Nokia 5140i is still one of the best phone I ever had. Not that I have had a lot of phones...It could withstand the punishment I put it through.
I still have my 3310. Only stopped using it because the battery died.

I've just been watching that for far far too long!

Oh my god watching that I was more worried than any horror film I've ever seen
€59? Do we use the Euro in this country now? I must've missed that.

I had to watch that to the end

Well considering Nokia is a Finnish company they use Euros, that is their currency.

No... but you can have Beverley Hills Cops as your ring tone lol. Somebody must have sent me it many moons ago at price of £100 per text.
Bring back the samsung d500
Ah, I remember the old logo editor. I made one from Metropolis Street Racer for the Dreamcast.
I don't think I've had a personalised ringtone since the MIDI days!

​Yes it's one of the Brexit conditions

Yes we do. In the currency exchange shops.
Brilliant! Hopefully it is true to original design as I have a (3210 and) 3310 needing batteries

When Sony mobiles were something!

Now just Android bloatware.

No it's not - it's a Trump condition, might be crap but not as crap as his hairdresser!
3510i was the one back in my day, at that point in time

Were Sony even involved at that point?

Yes we do. In the currency exchange shops.



Really? So we use the Japanese Yen, the Swiss Franc and the US Dollar too? Must let my corner shop know.
I wonder if they'll release it with all the new features such as bluetooth profiles. It would be ideal for a work colleague who only wants a candybar esque phone with actual buttons, which connects to his car bluetooth system. Hmmm
I loved editting my own ringtones

I believe it was before even Sony bought them.. Ericsson Communications


Yes that was my point, the best Sony handsets were pre-merger Ericsson... by Ericsson. Shame Ericsson did not go back to mobiles post de-merger given the fall/sale of Nokia there was a gap.

Ericsson/Nokia handsets were the dogs **** they egged each other on. After the SE merger they both got stale.

I'm still using a Nokia (OK, a slightly more up to date Lumia 1020). It has been dropped repeatedly and still works fine. It does have a few dents and a small scratch on the screen from where it landed on a stone (the stone broke).
Haven't found anything I want to replace it with.

Yes - Twitter works, even over SMS. support.twitter.com/art…014

Ahh sorry went ove rmy head clearly lol, but yes I agree.


No worries X) quite fancy Ericsson hardware with Blackberry 10, YUM!
3330 would be a better phone to remake, it had WAP!

You're wrong mate, I believe first Sony Ericsson was T68i It was based on Ericsson T68, but both pretty much the same.
59EUR?! I bought a brand new Nokia 100(?) for a tenner which is better and almost as robust from it's use of being a "car phone" thats gets thrown around.

You can buy reconditioned ones from China for not a lot of money (~15 quid last time I checked?), or I will just get my working 3310 from whichever dust ridden drawer I left it

Could you go back to getting rsi from sending a text though?
Didn't actually like the 3310, thought it was very ugly. The 8210 though
