Nokia 3310 – will it blend?
0. phoneArena 28 Nov 2012, 07:55 posted on
The Nokia 3310 is like the Chuck Norris of cell phones. Some say that when you drop it on the floor, the tiles break. Some say that police forces have one embedded in the front of their battering rams. Some say that when December 21 comes, it will be the last man-made thing standing. That's great and all, but will it blend?...

Or Rajnikanth (the Indian equivalent of Chuck Norris).

That's what Chuck Norris blends for breakfast, mixed with a bit of unicorn blood to make it tasty

You have it all backwards.
Only the Nokia 3310 can scratch Chuck Norris. Nothing can scratch a 3310.

Actually you can still buy them new. I saw one for display at a store, retailing for $130 unlocked. Interestingly, it said "Made in Japan" on the tag.

In one world this phone is "Miracle"
But, when I watch the torture test of Lumia 920, I have to say the 3310 has a big offspring.

Best phone ever made in the history of phonekind. Nokia should make a successor to this phone.

I have a Nokia 5530. All I'm saying is that I threw it at a wall as hard as I could, and the back cover and battery came off. There was a rather large dent on the wall, plaster had come off. I pick up the phone, and notice no difference. All that had happened was 2mm worth of paint chipped from the phone, that's it.
If I can't find a brick to throw at a robber, well, after that test, I don't think I'll need to look for one.

Only Diamonds can cut Diamonds, and only 3310 can blend 3310, so maybe blender was made up of parts from 3310. But first time I saw blender also getting some damage from the phone...........

While the Blendtec did win, it did not leave the fight unscathed. It looks like the container got a really good scratch or crack in it while it was blending. Luckily, those containers have a lifetime warranty!

My dad had the 3390 a while back and he left it on top of the car and it fell off and got run over a few times and all it had was a busted screen other than that it worked perfectly. hey now don't get me wrong, the 3310 and 3390 are tough, but the 6010 is too. lol

i remember when they blend iPhone5 and S3.. hahaha it tooks only 20 seconds to destroy them..
34. bluescreen (Posts: 154; Member since: 22 Nov 2012)
i personally think it would be a better comparison for this testing if they did it on say a 10 second time limit instead of just running the blender till they have dust.....anything will blend if u grind on it long enough
36. phil2n (Posts: 481; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
Totally Agree with you, but they didn't promote for phone, they are promoting their blender that's why they blend until the phone will be in dust
37. bluescreen (Posts: 154; Member since: 22 Nov 2012)
i guess ur right but then again i think PA should stop posting these pointless vids and articles....if people wanna know how they blend then they could always follow them on youtube
