A company called HMD Global wants to bring back the
3310 candy-bar phone
You regularly see comments from people lamenting the complexity of
modern smartphones, and wishing for a return to the simpler days of
mobile phones that were good at making calls, with less of all the
extra bells and whistles. As well as having much longer battery life.
Now we will see if resurrecting a popular model from the days when
phones did exactly that will succeed, given that today making calls is
one of the last things that people do with their phones...
In countries with no or little internet - SMS is very popular. You can
tweet with SMS etc. I could see the Nokia 3310 being useful here.
