The name “Nokia” packs plenty of nostalgia, and now almost 20 years on, parent company HMD has rebooted one of its most iconic models – the Nokia 3310 – as a simple phone with a few modern concessions. But does it stand the test of time, or is it better left in the past?
Back in February, HMD Global managed to send a slight tremor of excitement through the mobile tech world with the announcement of an updated version of Nokia's much-loved workhorse, the 3310, at Mobile World Congress. Now the nostalgic novelty is being made available with 3G cooked in.
As if having the Nokia brand back wasn't enough of a nostalgia hit for mobile lovers, new owners HMD Global have also brought back one of the most beloved phones of the past: the Nokia 3310. New Atlas got some hands-on time with it at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
