Nokia Is Relaunching The Indestructible 3310 And People Are Pretty Excited

By Mark Pygas

These days, just about everyone has a smartphone, and while they are life-changing in a lot of positive ways, they are obnoxiously fragile. So if you're a no-frills person who just wants a device you can call and send basic texts with (and maybe play a very very simple 8-bit game), your'e in luck. THe Nokia 3310, the company's best selling durable cellphone, is back. And they even come with your former favorite time-waster game, Snake. If you're tired of feeling completely dependent on your phone for literally everything, this might be the move for you. Or, you know, a really good backup to have on hand for the inevitable moment when you drop your smartphone and it splinters into a thousand tiny shards.

If you can even remember an age before smartphones, the chances are that you had a Nokia 3310 in your pocket at one point or another. After all, the Nokia 3310 was one of the best selling phones of the time, with more than 126 million units. As we all know, it quickly gained cult-status for being extremely reliable and durable.
