Boasting an incredible 22-hour talk-time and month long stand-by, the Nokia 3310’s fresh, colourful, modern design brings it bang up to date.
“Nokia phones stir real emotions; people know them for their beautiful design and craftsmanship, together with a built-to-last quality that you can rely on. Our new portfolio combines these classic Nokia hallmarks with a best-in-class Android performance and a new level of craftsmanship. For the Nokia 3310 we just couldn’t resist,” Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, said.

Iconic Snake game is back and available on Messenger
The world-renowned game Snake will be snaking its way back into people’s hearts with a new version available to play on Messenger, part of Facebook’s Instant Games cross platform experience. The new free Snake game is designed to be played with groups of friends making it even more playable than the first time around.
Snake first featured on Nokia handsets in the late 90s and since then has appeared on over 400 million phones. Users will no longer have to dig out their old handsets to get their nostalgia fix, instead HMD Global invites the world to unite through the free game and challenge friends to play, using Facebook’s Instant Games platform.
In keeping with the original game, players will move the snake around the screen, eating apples and bugs along the way to score points. The more the snake eats, the longer it grows, making it more challenging to control. There are six levels to enjoy, each with a different layout and snake skin. Gamers can choose from three speeds; the higher the speed, the higher the score. In addition, friends either one-on-one, or as a group can see who has the highest score on the leaderboard adding an element of friendly competition.
