One of the things that has been popping up on the radar of people who are interested in the tech industry is how Nokia is bringing back their 3310 model phone. It’s a throwback to the smaller, older style of phones. Definitely not a smartphone. It’s a testament to the movement of simplicity that’s been hitting the world. People miss the time before smartphones and all the crazy gadgets of today’s electronic era. The early 2000’s and late 90’s were simpler, and Nokia may have made a smart move with bringing back this phone.
Although the phone sells for a lot less, it’s also a lot cheaper to make, which means that Nokia will have much less overhead when distributing the device. It’s also going to have a lot of other ramifications for Nokia, which is attempting to compete in a market that’s full of competition.
Redesigned for 2017
One of the best parts about the redesign of the Nokia 3310 is that it’s been reimagined for 2017. It feature a polarized display so that it can be read better in the sunlight. However, it’s important to note that, for the most part, it’s a throwback and a testament to the older phones of decades past. One has to wonder how practical this really is.
Is it Practical?
These days, so many people rely on their smartphone to stay in the loop. They use it to send and receive pictures, get directions via-GPS when they are driving and aren’t sure where to go. Bringing an older model phone back into the mix will remove a lot of those benefits. This is the major hurdle that Nokia is going to face, convincing consumers that the nostalgia they get form using an older model of a phone is better than the
HMD Global Oy
One important thing to note is that there is another company called HMD Global, which bought the design and marketing rights to Nokia phones in 2016. Nokia itself now focuses on networking equipment. They have a partnership with HMD Global who takes care of the mobile phone side of the business.
Possibly the biggest attraction that people will have towards this new phone from Nokia is the ability that they’d have to play the classic game called “Snake” on it. It’s the one where you use the buttons to move the snake left, right, up, or down, and try to avoid crashing into the wall or other obstacles. It was one of the simplest games ever on mobile phones, but also one of the most popular. It’s availability on the 3310 is something that HMD hopes can be a big selling point.
The Nokia 6
The Nokia 6 is the flagship smartphone from Nokia at the moment, and it could be getting more attention now that Nokia has released a phone that should garnet attention, especially from those who are missing the older model phones that used to be out there.
There are a lot of people out there who are busy doing different things. They are driving, texting, or going to work. The thing is that they use their smartphone for lots of things that they don’t even think about, like checking social media, email, and other things. One has to wonder whether these smartphones are really necessary, or if we just think that they are. HMD and Nokia are both hoping that people will give the simpler, older phone a chance and see if all the smartphone-benefits are really just a part of our imaginations.
Personally, I like my iPhone 7 Plus.
