Perhaps the most iconic phone in history, the Nokia 3310, is planned to be reissued during the Mobile World Congress at the end of this month.

Quote:
Nokia will re-launch the 3310, perhaps the best-loved and most resilient phone in history.

The phone, originally released in 2000 and in many ways beginning the modern age of mobiles, will be sold as a way of getting lots of battery life in a nearly indestructible body.

The new incarnation of the old 3310 will be sold for just €59 (about $95 CAD), and so likely be pitched as a reliable second phone to people who fondly remember it the first time around. It will be revealed at Mobile World Congress later this month, according to leaker Evan Blass who first revealed the details.

So who's ready to get a phone that doesn't require a case and only loses 1% of its battery a day? I'd be down for one.

Hmm, it looks interesting indeed! I'm wondering how Nokia's newest iteration of 3310 will look like. I hope it's pretty good enough for everyday usage

EDIT: Plus, this reminds me of the Microsoft's April mop stuffs years before, just like in spoilers below (even though I found out about the 'info' and the pic in weeks ago).
Spoiler:

I'm wondering if the concept in the picture will came true soon (except for possibly OS department), or with Nokia's own twist? Or will it stay true to the originals? I can't wait!

I see that there's a market for a reissued 3310, but it's a small one - I wonder if this move will be profitable for them?

Don't need battery packs for your smartphone anymore if you have this phone they'll last 3 months.

*LOW BATTERY ALERT* -> Battery dies 3 days later.
Miss those times so much.
