The Nokia 3310 is out and all die hard Nokia fans are buried deep in nostalgia. However i’m not too fond of the device at all. Here is why.
To me the 3310 evolved itself from being just another Nokia model to being its own brand. Now I get that the 3310 was supposed to pay homage to its iconic ancestor the first 3310 but i feel that making another feature phone in this day and age does not do the 3310 brand enough justice.
I mean if the 3310 is to get to Zimbabwe that is where almost everyone’s EcoCash line is going to be (yes I said EcoCash line) and therefore it will be deemed nothing than a sentimental, flashy secondary device for your other line.
This is a Nokia 3310 Brand and not just another Nokia model. I feel it deserves to be a gem in the new Nokia lineup. A feature rich, modern smartphone with a classic 3310 design language offering a unique alternative to the bar shape slab type smartphones we see in all brands today. The Nokia 3310 is not just an iconic model, it’s an iconic brand.
