Once upon a time, phones could last for three days straight, AND survive a drop of two stories high. While that isn’t possible nowadays, Nokia is bestowing on us the ultimate throwback by re-launching the one and only Nokia 3310.
Known for its insane durability, this much loved phone was first launched in 2000 by Finnish phone manufacturer Nokia, and is the mother of all things indestructible, even being able to withstand a freaking sledgehammer, as evidenced in the video below:
According to reputable mobile leaker Evan Blass of VentureBeat, the 3310 will be making a comeback as a “modern” version at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month, costing €59 ($88) – quite a bargain really if you need a phone that’ll never be destroyed.
There aren’t any details yet on what the “modern” 3310 will be like, but if it’s anything like the old model, users can expect features like a clock, calculator, storage of up to 10 reminders, and a grand total of four games: Snake II, Pairs II, Space Impact, and Bantumi.
If you can’t wait to get your hands on the 3310, there’s the option of snagging one on Amazon. Though it won’t come directly from Nokia, as the company hasn’t manufactured one in years.
