HMD – the company behind the new breed of Nokia branded phones – is planning to revive the iconic Nokia 3310 feature phone, according to a report on Monday.
VentureBeat’s Evan Blass says the manufacturer will relaunch the much-loved device, first released in the year 2000 to replace the 3210 (which looked very similar) and went on to sell around 126 million worldwide.
It was discontinued in 2005 – but now there’s new hope for people who want a ‘no frills’ handset that can stay on for up to ten days.

The new handset which is rumoured to be re-released at the Mobile World Congress later on February 26, will cost around £49, according to VentureBeats.
The 3310 was a hugely popular phone famed for its tough construction, mega battery life, swappable fascias and addictive Snake video game.
Yes! We really did love them back in the day.
