The classic Nokia 3310 of year 2000 was one the most popular phones till recent days and HMD used this perfectly to remake. HMD announced the new design of the legend at MWC but where people showed interest, some also rejected it as clueless design.
But the recent reports suggest that the interest might now be turning into sales where as people are placing pre-orders for the phone more than expected. Carphone Warehouse, a UK retailer has disclosed to Telegraph UK.
It’s believed that the new 3310 has very less similarities to the classic one and instead has a lot of differences. But looks like that denying the objection on the new design of Nokia 3310, people still want to buy it. The retailer told the paper that it has seen an “unprecedented level of demand for a feature phone.”
“There has been an astonishing groundswell of interest in the Nokia 3310 following the launch announcement of this reimagined classic,” Andrew Wilson, UK director of buying at Carphone Warehouse, told Telegraph.
“Levels of pre-registrations at Carphone Warehouse are incredibly strong, proving that it’s not all hype and that consumers really want to get their hands on one.” told the director.
Carphone warehouse is currently the only retailer that has opened pre-registrations for the new Nokia 3310. The phone is priced at €49.
