Nokia 3310 Lives Again In Color And With A Month’s Worth Of Battery Life

So you heard the exciting rumor and now here the official words from the maker: Nokia 3310 is alive once again – thanks to licensed Nokia phone maker, fellow Finnish company, HMD Global.

Then again, I really shouldn’t cling on to the past. Continue reading Nokia 3310 Lives Again In Color And With A Month’s Worth Of Battery Life

After giving up its mobile division, Nokia has been dabbling in bigger things, like navigation and imaging. If you have not yet hear, earlier on this year, the Finnish tech company has unveiled its first virtual reality camera, dubbed OZO. The product name is as odd as the shape of the camera.
