Nokia 3310 3G Coming to Australia Mid October

MKAU attended today the Nokia launch event for the new 3310 3G that is making it's way to Australia next month. It will retail for a wallet-happy $89.95. The 3310 goes back to its roots from Nokia's heyday. It is a sleek little phone that will allow you to make and receive calls and texts (and MMS) and do some basic interweb stuff. While the 3310 has been available overseas for a little while now, it is currently only in 2G form, something that will no longer work on Australian soil due to the 2G network shutdown.

The 3310 will suit those wanting a less-is-more appraoch to a mobile phone or even a "going out" phone so you don't need to worry so much about damaging or losing your current $1200 smartphone. It would also be a great security blanket for your kids for sleep-overs too.

It comes with a whole host of features such as a 2mp camera, colour screen, alphanumeric keypad, headphone jack and a new and improved snake game!! Oh and a battery life that will shame the current-gen smartphones... Everything you need in a phone :) I have got one of these lovely little phones, and while millenials will most likely NOT appreciate its simplicity, there is certainly a market gap that will fit the 3310 nicely.

I personally like the phone, and while it won't replace my iPhone 7 Plus, it will certainly have its place beside it when the time comes.
