I'll be really curious to see how many people will pay extra just for the branding.

Also, people remembered Nokia as a maker of very sturdy devices. If these Chinese phones turn out to be average in terms of build quality and robustness, it may quickly kill the nostalgy.

Nokia resurrect the old Nokia 3310 again. I don't know if this is good idea. This phone against cheap Chinese Android phones in world where you assume you can surf the net on the phone.

It sounds they are trying to resurrect the former glory days with a phone that is today completely obsolete. If they choose the exact same phone that is.

Then possibly you can add a larger screen but then the phone becomes significantly larger.

If I saw a 17 years old phone being sold again, I'd laugh out loud to be honest, maybe buy one just for the lulz.
Wait, they're actually doing it? That's not a dumb idea from the depths of your brain? Shocked

I can't see how they could offer the original 3310's durability and sturdiness for a price that now people are now used to be paying for a cheap Chinese sh*t that totally wears out and breaks not later than the day warranty runs out. It takes a completely different manufacturing process and part quality, so it costs money.

Indeed, there are people who miss a very simple phone like the 3310, but mainly because of their nostalgy for its durability and sturdiness. Give them something that will break if you squeeze it a little bit too tight and their whole nostalgy will vanish.

So I'm afraid that either this phone will have to cost as much as smartphones (which I'm afraid not many people will want to pay) or it'll be a fragile piece of **** that will quickly kill the myth.
