European carrier confirms 3G Nokia 3310 arrives in late September or early October


There have been a couple of reports claiming HMD plans to launch a 3G version of the Nokia 3310, the feature phone that made its debut at MWC 2017 early this year, but nothing official transpired until recently.

It appears that an Irish carrier has just confirmed that it will offer the 3G Nokia 3310 starting later this year. The feature phone should be available at Three Ireland in late September or early October, but info about its price tag has yet to emerge.

Last month, a 3G version of the Nokia 3310 (model number TA-1036) was spotted at FCC (Federal Communications Commission), which suggests the feature phone could be released in the United States as well.

The current variant of Nokia 3310 does not support 3G, one of the main reasons many customers did not purchase the dumb phone. While some would think that HMD should have launched the device with 3G support in the first place, that would have increased its price for sure.

yes, via opera mini, i dont own 3310 yet, but Nokia feature phone can 1. stream youtube via built in media player 2. play various online games like Age of Heroes Online (AOHO) 3. download full movies, mostly in 140p or 240p resolution. this include other kinds of video like the one you found in site like popcornhub (not sure of spelling) thats why in these adult site you see they still support 3gp. so its somehow capable and it need 3G.

Three is the absolute worst network in Ireland. They purchased O2 a few years ago and took on all of their customers. As a result their network is slow and overloaded. They have a few other networks using them as well like Tesco, Virgin and 48. Unless you live in the city center of Cork, Limerick, Dublin etc it's useless..
