Nokia 3310: A legendary comeback

 Yes,it's true. Nokia 3310, the legendary phone, will come back soon. A news headline that makes every mobile phone enthusiast feel excited.

HMD GLOBAL Oy,the Finnish manufacturer that bought the rights to market phones under the Nokia brand from Microsoft will unveil four phones during the Barcelona 2017 Mobile World Congress, which is about to start in Feb 26, Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 (already available in China).
However,Nokia 3310 already considered as the "big deal".

Detailed information in scarce, right now.There are, of course, questions about how can Nokia 3310 structure and software be adapted to smartphone era. Will Android OS fit to a "modern" Nokia 3310? Will Nokia 3310 structured as a thinner smartphone or not? HMD has not answered these questions yet.
At least,we know that its retail price will be 59€(approximately 62$).

 Nokia 3310 was launched in 2000.  It sold 126 million units until 2005.
 Then,its manufacture was discontinued.
 It is sold now on, not by company itself.

Combatibility, reliability, sturdiness were just three of the characteristics which consisted a phone called as an "almost indestructible machine". A long-lasted battery was another one. 
Key features  included a clock, a calculator, the ability to store 10 reminders and 4 preinstalled games: Pairs II, Space Impact, Bantumi and of course the unforgetable Snake II.

HMD is willing to bet on the great comeback. Is it sensible?  Customers will decide....The only sure thing is that Nokia 3310 will fight to prove that deserves a second chance.
