The 2017 edition of the Nokia 3310 is finally available to buy today, some three months after its grand unveiling sparked a wave of nostalgia and a surge of interest in retro handsets.
Up for grabs from Carphone Warehouse, Vodafone and EE, the £49.99 handset is tipped to find a ready market among consumers who want a back-up phone for emergencies, or a stripped-down, cheap(ish) ‘festival phone’.
If you want to get one right now, you’ll need to get yourself down to select bricks-and-mortar outlets in London.
Among them are Vodafone’s White City and Oxford Street Experience stores, which are offering the 3310 for £39 on pay as you go when bought with a £10 Big Value Bundle.
Carphone’s Oxford Street store is also selling the 3310 today, where the queues of would-be owners were entertained by Trigger Happy TV’s Dom Joly mugging with a trademark massively oversized version of the phone.
The new take on the 3310 retains the original’s candy bar-style design, staggering battery life and hard-wearing properties. But adds a colour screen, a stripped down browser and a two-megapixel camera.
