Innovation reinvented: Nokia 3310 PureView pops up with 41 MP camera and Windows Phone

Ever wondered what the great phones of yesteryear would look like with a modern mobile OS and beefed-up specs? Well, you can tell your imagination to give it a rest now, as Nokia has posted pictures of its evergreen 3310, now running Windows Phone, and having a telling "hump" on the back. That protrusion turns out to be none other than the 41 MP PureView camera module we know from the Lumia 1020, which will ensure oodles of photographic fun with the reinvented 3310. Nokia managed to stuff a dual-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a microSD slot in dimensions close to the original's casing, gracing the new 3310 with a 3-inch "Clear Diamond" display that sports the generous 768 x 1280 pixels.

Of course it's an April Fools' joke, but it makes us longing for the times when the phones lasted a week on a charge, and there weren't hundreds of thousands of game titles to choose from, so those Snake sessions turned oh-so-intense. We are certain Nokia would have some customers for this thing, if it manages to indeed pull it off, though we doubt it will last as long on a charge as its original inspiration.

This clearly is PA's or Nokia's April Fools' Day Joke.

Interesting question is, did PA got fooled or they decided to play along with Nokia ?

If you read the last paragraph, you'll get your answer. And by going against the current trend in PA, I would refrain from calling you names.

The bezels are too big. Please reduce them. Also ensure we are given an external keyboard.

I don't know what's the point of April Fools Joke. 99.99% of them aren't funny and mindless, especially when you knew it is the First April. It would be much more interesting when they post something like this in say, 23 of May...
