You may remember last year I told you all of Nokia’s plans to relaunch their 3310 model with an improved “Snake” game. This retro phone was quite successful sales wise, despite the fact it was very limited in features and did not support 4G. In many cases it wouldn’t even connect to some networks. Now comes the news that the company are to relaunch the 8110 from the late 1990s. This phone was famously featured in the sci-fi film The Matrix, for which it was modified featuring a spring-loaded mechanism. The new 2018 version of the 8110 will include 4G and another new version of the Snake game.

Acouple of months ago we posted of our love for the old Nokia 3310 and Nokia’s plans to relaunch the phone. So you can imagine our excitement the other day as we drove past The Carphone Warehouse in Hoylake only to see it in the window. Razzi and I had to go and investigate and discover if all the talk is worth the fuss. We still have an original 3310 at home, so is it worth buying a new one for under £50 when most modern smartphones will set you back about ten times that figure?

We were right the other week when we announced that Nokia was planning on relaunching the 3310, seventeen years after its debut. Many consider the original handset iconic because of its popularity and sturdiness. More than 126 million were produced before it was phased out in 2005. The revamped version will be sold under license by the Finnish start-up HMD Global, which also unveiled several Nokia-branded Android smartphones. One expert said it was a “fantastic way” to relaunch Nokia’s phone brand. Here at Jammy Toast, we feel it is not going to set the world alight but it is a bit of fun to restart the Nokia brand.

Well would you Adam and Eve it, the current rumour mill is suggesting that Nokia is planning to bring back their iconic Nokia 3310 phone. Most of our Jammy Toast followers are old enough to remember the 3310 and if you were in the market for a new phone around the year 2000, then the 3310 may well have been the phone you chose. In fact, there are many advantages to using a 3310 as against a modern smartphone. Unlike large screened iPhones and Androids they are not partial to the glass screen cracking and make a sturdy, reliable handsets with a long battery life.
