BARCELONA, SPAIN—Feature phones are cool again! At least that's the feeling you get when you are holding the new Nokia 3310, a candy bar feature phone made out of weapons-grade nostalgia. It doesn't really have apps, you'll be texting with T9, it has a new color version of Snake, and of course it plays the traditional Nokia tone when you get a call.
The new 3310 is no longer a "brick." It's a lot rounder than the old one—it feels like a well-worn river rock. I actually would have liked if it was a little squarer and more reminiscent of the original. Given that it has a really light plastic body (79g) and a plastic screen, it can probably stand up to lots of abuse (though no one would let me test this at the event).
from Nokia 3310 hands-on: It’s hard not to like this modern take on the feature phone
