All the cool kids want a Nokia 3310 (release date: soon!)

The original Nokia 3310 – launched in 2000 – was an epic, utterly simple and indestructible phone with a battery that lasted forever.

Now, 17 years later, there’s a new one on the market.

It’s slimmer with a softer design, but it’s still dumb.

There is no touchscreen, no Wi-Fi and no 3G.

The 2-megapixel camera is slow.

But it’s got “Snake”!

All the cool kids want one.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Stuff magazine Editor Craig Wilson.

Wilson discussed whether you should bother about the Nokia 3310 reboot.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

It will hopefully come below R700.

Craig Wilson, Stuff

It’s great for an emergency phone.

Craig Wilson, Stuff

The battery can last for a month.

Craig Wilson, Stuff

This will be taught in business schools for years to come!
