Nokia’s 3310 phone has been relaunched nearly 17 years after its debut.
Many consider the original handset iconic because of its popularity and sturdiness. More than 126 million were produced before it was phased out in 2005.
The revamped version will be sold under licence by the Finnish start-up HMD Global, which also unveiled several Nokia-branded Android smartphones.
One expert said it was a “fantastic way” to relaunchf Nokia’s phone brand.
“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.”
The announcement was made ahead of the start of the Mobile World Congress tech show in Barcelona. LG, Huawei and Lenovo are among others to have unveiled new devices.
Nokia no longer makes phones itself, but manufactures telecoms equipment, Ozo virtual reality cameras, and health kit under the Withings brand.
The new 3310 qualifies as a “feature phone” rather than a smartphone as it only provides limited internet facilities.
It relies on 2.5G connectivity – which has slower data speeds than 3G or 4G – and is powered by the S30+ operating system, which allows web browsing but has a much smaller range of apps than Android or iOS. Its single camera is also restricted to two megapixel.
However, its advantage over more powerful handsets is its battery life. HMD says the colour-screened phone has up to a month’s standby time and delivers more than 22 hours of talk time.
It also comes with the modern version of the classic game Snake preinstalled.
Its launch price is €49 ($51,75; £41.51).
“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.”
Top 3 bootable USB tools for Windows operating system:
Rufus is a tiny bootable media creator. Yet, it is multilingual and packs many features which can make your bootable USB flash drive creation process more effective. You can create your bootable USB media for both MBR and GPT partition schemes. Rufus facilitates options to install your desired operating system on a UEFI firmware enabled machine. You can install Windows XP in UEFI mode due to OS limitations.
It doesn’t matter what ISO you’re using. It can be Windows 7, 8, 10, any Linux distro, or ISO file of any other operating system. You can choose whether to use the FAT32, NTFS, exFAT, or UDF file systems for the bootable USB media. One thing that helps Rufus stand out in the crowd is that it takes less time to create the bootable USB drive.
The biggest advantage of using WinSetupFromUSB is that you can put multiple ISO files on one flash drive and create a multiboot USB. This will allow you to have a choice of more than one operating system at the time of installation. Just like Rufus, it has many features and allows you to create a bootable USB media for different types of operating system.
3. Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool
This bootable USB drive creation tool is made by Microsoft. Although it is known as Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool, it works for other versions of Windows also. As far as its usability is concerned, it should be at the top position. If you have the USB drive and the ISO file, you only need to make a few clicks and you’re done.
Also, it is a Microsoft product so it only supports ISO files of Microsoft products like Windows, Visual Studio, etc. Microsoft has stopped its development because with the launch of Windows 8 their new Media Creation Tool was also released.

Coughing is one of the most common health problems. When there is a blockage or irritant in your throat or upper air passages, your brain thinks a foreign element is present and tells your body to cough to remove that element. Coughing can also be due to a viral infection, common cold, flu, and smoking or health problems such as asthma, tuberculosis, and lung cancer.
Some of the symptoms of a cough are itchy throat, chest pain, and congestion. Instead of using over-the-counter cough syrups, you can try some natural cough treatments using readily available ingredients in your kitchen.
