Nokia 3310 comparisonAn Expert to the BBC that this was a “fantastic way” to relaunch the Nokia Phone brand, from the Finnish start-up HMD Global, which also unveiled several Nokia-branded Android powered smartphones.

“The 3310 was the first mass-market mobile and there’s a massive amount of nostalgia and affection for it,” commented Ben Wood from the technology consultancy CCS Insight.

“If HMD had just announced three Android devices they would have barely got a couple of column inches in the press.

“So, the 3310 is a very clever move and we expect it will sell in significant volumes.”

“It’s almost like a digital detox or a holiday phone,” HMD’s chief executive Arto Nummela told the BBC.

“If you want to switch off to an extent but you still need to have a [mobile] lifeline, it’s a brilliant solution.

“Why wouldn’t you buy this like candy? If you see this hanging on the shelf at the checkout in a [see-through] package, then you’d just buy it as an accessory.”

HDM plans to have the New Device on sale Q2 this year, 2017 for a very reasonable price of around $52 (49 euros).
