No, it’s not a joke. It is as real as it can get on 1st of April!!

Nokia has just announced an Icon of a Phone born by the marriage of Indestructible Nokia 3310 with 41 MP monster PureView camera.

Initially released in the year 2000, the Nokia 3310 went on to be one of the most successful mobile phones ever. More than 125 million were sold and, thanks to a small group of Nokia fanatics, this cult handset is making a modern-day comeback.

Staying near-true to the original design, the Nokia 3310 with PureView will add a 41MP PureView camera with Zeiss optics and Xenon flash, and will run a modified version of Windows 8 to fit the unique ‘ClearDiamond’ three-inch touch screen.

It comes pre-loaded with four games – Snake II, Pairs II, Space Impact and Bantumi -, a currency converter and original monophonic ringtones.

Some quotes to mark this historic launch,

From a Nokia 3310 Fanatic, Norman Gage

“It’s an historic day. For five years, we’ve worked hard to make our voice heard and now our dreams are about to become reality. Personally, I’d have preferred to keep the five-line, monochrome screen, six ringing-tone volume levels and original message templates, but you can’t win them all!”

Juha Alakarhu, Nokia head of Imaging Technologies, said,

“I’m really excited that we’ve found a way to marry our innovative PureView technology with such a beloved device. With its durable design and iconic look, we think even more people will enjoy our signature PureView magic ”
