Nokia 3310 to finally be released in 3G-and Australia's up first

Nokia 3310 to finally be released in 3G-and Australia's up first

Another big change is the change in operating system from the Nokia Series 30+ to one called Feature OS which, according to HMD Global, "has been improved to deliver an enhanced, customisable experience". The phone will go on sale in Australia from October 16.

The Nokia 3310 was popular for its long battery life and sturdy build.

This is why the Nokia 3310 was not launched in the U.S. as 2G is one of the older networks that carriers across the country are in the process of shutting down.

Delta is adding free in-flight messaging - with a catch
Want to see what other hedge funds are holding DAL? Evercore Co Na holds 15.32 million shares or 2.51% of its portfolio. Delta Air Lines, Inc. had its "overweight" rating reiterated by analysts at JP Morgan. (NYSE:DAL) for 163,805 shares.

The feature phone was launched first in Australia which is surprising considering the fact that the company has a huge fan following in the United States, Brazil and India among many other regions.

If you find the sleek, full-screen displays of modern smartphones off-putting and you want something more old-school, an upcoming Nokia phone could be what you're looking for. In developed regions like US, UK and Canada, there is very little availability of 2G network as majority of cellular carriers have upgraded to 3G networks. For the same reason, the 3G variant of the phone has different software than the 2G variant of the phone. Last week, HMD Global's Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, had teased an Android Oreo update for the Nokia 8.

HMD says that the new Nokia 3310 3G will be available starting in mid-October, at an "average" price of €69.

Specifications of the 3G variant of Nokia 3310 are the same as its predecessor. You can see the live Tweet from here.

The Nokia 3310 3G retains the iconic design language associated with the original device and has Azure, Yellow, Warm Red and Charcoal as colour options. Each sports a new silver keypad. It had a 2-megapixel primary camera on the rear and was powered by a 1200mAh removable battery. The Nokia 3310 3G has a talk time of 6.5 hours and a standby time of 27 days.

In a dose of pure Nokia nostalgia, the Nokia 3310 also comes with a refreshed version of the Snake game. Nonetheless, the phone is measured at 117×52.4×13.3mm, and it weighs around 88 grams for dual-SIM variants.
