First Cell Phone

The Nokia 3310 was its first ever GSM cell phone, when it came out in 2000. It had a battery life of 2 h 30 min to 4 h 30 of talk time and 55 to 245 hours of standby charge. It had features such as SMS messaging, a calculator, Nokia network monitor, stop watch, and a reminder function. It also had four games: Pairs II, Space Impact, Bantumi, and the hugely popular Snake II.


It is also back in production. The new Nokia 3310 takes the iconic silhouette of the original and reimagines it. The custom designed user interface brings a fresh look to a classic. It has a 2.4” polarized and curved screen window, which makes for better readability in sunlight. It offers 22 hours of talk time off a single charge and should keep running for 31 days in standby mode.
