The new Nokia 3110 Classic Blue Edition has today been launched on Orange Pay As You Go in the UK, this new twist on a model that was originally available almost 7 years ago compliments the minimalist design and simplicity of the model range.

Sturdy, reliable and easy to use, the Nokia 3110 Classic Blue concentrates on delivering high quality key communication functions and not the quantity of features available or the most fashionable design.
If the latest gizmos and gadgets really aren’t your thing and you just want to get back to basics, the Nokia 3110 Classic lives up to its name.
Having said that though, the Nokia 3110 may be basic but it still comes with the standard features that one has come to expect from a mobile as the norm, such as the built-in Media Player with support for MP3 and AAC file formats amongst others.
Then you’ve got the FM Stereo Radio, keeping you up to date with the latest news and sports headlines or you can capture those one off moments with the 1.3 mega pixel camera or record a video clip and playback later.
The Blue Nokia 3110 Classic, a Tri Band GSM handset, supports GPRS and EDGE technology along with Bluetooth Wireless, USB and infrared. So as far as connectivity options go, you’re pretty much covered on everything.
With Push to Talk Technology and integrated Web Browser, you can access emails at the touch of the button or search a wide range of on line content when out and about.
So overall, not so basic in terms of capability but actually a very impressive and reliable handset that will certainly go a long way for less.
