The Nokia 3310 Has Been Resurrected…And It Has Buttons

Most people have smartphones these days, but there will always be people who would prefer less technology. It seems like Nokia (or rather HMD Global) has taken notice and answered the cries of the minority, and delivered an old, reliable classic slightly refreshed for the modern times.

A few Christmases ago, most of my younger cousins got cell phones. My husband quickly pointed out that none of them had buttons, which were a staple to us as teenagers and young adults. These kids were experiencing smartphones as their very first cell phone. The times had definitely changed.

The phone runs on 2.5G at a time when phones are about to hop on over to 5G. The camera is 2 megapixels. You’ll have to remember how T9 works. And the web browser? I don’t even want to think about it. Is this all a clever marketing ploy designed to sell more smartphones? Give the people what they want but then upsell them when they arrive at the store to buy it? Either way, web designers and companies who want to be competitive at gaining mobile traffic will have to consider how this web browser, whatever it might be, will work, and adjust accordingly.
