The announcement from Nokia that they would be releasing a new version of their classic handset the 3310 was met with mixed views, mainly how would this basic feature phone fare in the ever demanding smartphone world. According to Carphone Warehouse, Nokia could be onto a winner as the pre-registration interest on the Nokia 3310 has exceeded records.
Nokia 3310 Pre-registration
The Nokia 3310 has been available as a pre-registered interest to users through the Carphone Warehouse both in store and on their website and according to their records the number of registrations has smashed previous figures of other flagship models that have been unveiled at the MWC.
That is flagship models, so the Nokia 3310 feature phone is taking on the biggest manufacturers and winning – no small feat for the Snake-game phone that doesn’t even offer mobile internet.
Record number of orders for 3310
According to the UK Buying Director of Carphone Warehouse, Andrew Wilson, ” Levels of pre-registrations at Carphone Warehouse are incredibly strong, proving that it’s not all hype, and that consumers really want to get their hands on one”.
The fact that the Nokia 3310 is one of the stand out stars of the MWC 2017 is incredibly impressive as is it comes up against the big reveals from LG and Sony.
The phone holds nostalgia for a lot of smartphone users as it was the first mobile phone for many, and the game of Snake took this phone to new heights in its day with feverish competition to become the high-score holder.
The announcement of the phone coming back into stores sparked a social media frenzy with users reminiscing about the durability and long lasting battery of this old handset.
