Celebrating 15 years of the great Nokia 3310

The Nokia 3310 we know is celebrating 15 years of it’s existence.  This one phone changed the lives of people worldwide, Nigerians especially. According to it’s Wikipedia page, the Nokia 3310 was announced September 1, 2000 and went ahead to become one of the most successful phones sold worldwide.  Over 126 million units of this phone were sold.

Nokia-3310 This phone was heavily respected for its strength, durability, and long lasting battery life. The phone defined for Nigerians what Nokia stands for. Till date, people still associate Nokia devices with the characteristics the 3310 exhibited. On the contrary, many people still don’t know Nokia no longer produces phones (though that may change come next year).

All hail the Great Nokia 3310!!

    I haven’t seen one of these in ages, though I have seen the 6210 and even a 5110 recently. I’d love to know how many working 3310s are out there. Now that would be something to celebrate!

    I never actually got to use this phone. I just saw it with people.

    I had an uncle that used the 3210 sibling anyway…and as strong as that phone was, im pretty sure this 3310 was stronger.

    O jabo ko fo!!

      I’m convinced the 3210 is stronger than the 3310. Unfortunately we don’t have either of these phones to test out this theory 😀
