Post nr. 808 is for… The Myth! The Legendary! The No Less Than Epic Nokia 3310! :-)

Quite a coincidence! With post nr. 808 I can celebrate a next milestone in the @PureViewClub Twitter folllowers. As you may know, I set my goals in Nokia model numbers, and although it was tempting to choose 3210, of course 3310 was a far more epic number – it would only take me some more time.

So recently, @PureViewClub has reached 3310 followers, and I’ve been looking for a 3310 in mint condition, still in the package, but that proved to be not as easy as I expected.

I spoke to a friend about it, who has an unbelievable collection of Nokia phones (even some I never even seen or heard about). To celebrate reaching 3310 followers, I could borrow part of his collection, and from those I made a few shots with – it won’t surprise you – the Nokia 808 PureView.

Nokai 3310 - 3

I took the shots at night in the light of the kitchen lamp – some with flash, some without. I just wanted to share some more or less surprising close-ups of the phone that has become the inspiration of many internet memes.

Nokai 3310 - 4

Here’s a selection of the shots I think you might like – not just in its “classic” form, but especially a few with their once so popular colorful covers.

Nokai 3310 - 7

Nokai 3310 - 6

Nokai 3310 - 5

Nokai 3310 - 1

Nokai 3310 - 10

I hope this was a rare chance to see many different kinds of the legendary Nokia 3310… – the phone that is (as you are probably aware of) strong as Chuck Norris!

I could have shared more shots, but I think these were the best I made. Now to me the most important question is what my next goal should be…. At what point should I celebrate the @PureViewClub followers on Twitter? Ive got a pretty good idea – another practically indestructable Nokia – but maybe you can change my mind :-)

    I had a 3330 (3310 with Wap and a few extras) and hated it, the one-item-at-a-time only menu, the interface, the extreme, banal simplicity… I couldn’t get what the hype was all about and why everyone had one. A bit like iPhone today. Got rid of it and stuck with Ericsson and Motorola until Symbian finally changed my mind about Nokia.

      Motorola with their utterly bizarre interface?

      I had a liking for both my V525 and V3 (still one of the best mobile designs ever), but the simplicity of the 3330 is hard to beat. Never had any issues with the interface, it was clean, uncluttered and easy to use.
