At the start of the Mobile World Congress tech show in Barcelona, it was announced that the Nokia 3310 would be relaunched, 17 years after its debut. The popular handset entered the decline stage of the product life cycle in 2005. This strategic move has been described as an very exciting way of relaunching Nokia’s phone brand.
Nokia, who now manufactures telecom equipment, was well known for having handsets with a long lasting battery life which provided an advantage over its competitors.
The new Nokia 3310 will allow web browsing but will only provide a small range of apps, a 2 megapixel camera and will rely on 2.5G connectivity. It will be priced at €49 ($51.75, £41.51).
