Thread: Nokia’s revised 3310 mobile phone is the latest tech to target retro-adopters

    Nokia’s revised 3310 mobile phone is the latest tech to target retro-adopters

    The tech giant Nokia has announced plans to release a new version of the old classic 3310 mobile phone.

    The original handset was popular at the turn of the century. The revised version will be a simple device that can make phone calls and send text messages, and not much else apart from play the cult game of Snake.

    "retro-adopters"
    Is that a new word for hipster?
    Actually no, most hipsters have taste for retro. This Nokia is no more retro than one of these:

    Next thing to make a comeback, film cameras.

    I watch that stupid BCX (I think) commercial with the Chinese laughing at the Uber question. Then I think to myself, yeah with all the hype over how those things would be replaced they actually all made a comeback in some way.

    If a 3310 remake was the highlight at Mobile World Conference, then that is sign of the lacklustre improvements of current flagship phones.
    I believe posters are recognised by their sig... so I made one.

    I had a Toyota Venture with big 14" wheels, oodles of space and no aircon, no power steering, no cruise control, no USB, no airbags, 7 km/l. Fantastic car - but will I buy one today? Nope.

    Had a Nokia 3310 - simple design, long battery life, no whatsapp, no messenger, no e-mail. Fantastic phone.....

    The hype supersedes potential sales by far.

    People still use CDs, tapes, floppies, etc. What's your point?

    Not really... It was just one of those surprise moments that caught many off guard.

    The S8 and iphone whatever is still going to grab headlines.
