Nokia 3310 gets 41-megapixel, Windows Phone makeover
Heritage, much-loved and foolproof handset brought back from the ashes with powerful PureView imaging capabilities.
Initially released in the year 2000, the Nokia 3310 went on to be one of the most successful mobile phones ever. More than 125 million were sold and, thanks to a small group of Nokia fanatics, this cult handset is making a modern-day comeback.
Staying near-true to the original design, the Nokia 3310 with PureView will add a 41MP PureView camera with Zeiss optics and Xenon flash, and will run a modified version of Windows Phone 8 to fit the unique ‘ClearDiamond’ three-inch touch screen.
As well as the classic metallic dark blue, the Nokia 3310 with PureView will also come in yellow, blue, red and green.
Three ‘soft-touch’ navigation keys still feature a Windows Phone ‘home’ button has been introduced to you straight back to the Start Screen.
LiveTiles and App Folders are supported and it comes pre-installed with MS Office, Xbox Games, Outlook and OneDrive that offers 7GB free cloud storage out of the box.
Juha Alakarhu, Nokia head of Imaging Technologies, said:
