It was a dream for many people to have a phone that can last for month long with a single charge and this can be done by none other than the rugged NOKIA.
Company is back with its flagship model Nokia 3310.
In Early 2000 when I was at school this was the first phone I started using and instantly fell in love with the features it had. Before touch/smart phone generation, Nokia was like a boss leading mobile market because of its durability and battery quality. Many People believe that Nokia phones are the toughest objects in universe, and are said to be unbreakable, at least jokingly.
May be Nokia is dumb compared to the smartphones today with their 4G internet connections, touch screens, app installations etc, but back then it was like super computer compared to some competitors with the features like alarm clock, calendar, allowing text messages longer than 140 characters, stop watch, snake games etc.
Nokia 3310 has been reborn 17 years after it was first released.
HMD global a Finnish company (which acquired the rights to Nokia brand) and Nokia announced for new phones at Mobile World Congress(MWC) 2017 in Barcelona. On Feb 27th 2017 Nokia launched Nokia 6, 5, and 3 android phones along with Nokia 3310 on 27th which was highlight of that event.
