Nokia 3310 pre-orders canceled by Clove UK?

Late last month, the refreshed Nokia 3310 feature phone was made available for pre-orders from Clove UK. Reservations were being taken for the phone in a variety of colors including Warm Red, Dark Blue, Yellow, and Grey. Priced at the equivalent of $67 USD pre-tax, all of the units were to be released in the middle of next month. But as you can see from the accompanying screenshot, something has changed at Clove. Instead of being labeled pre-order, you can now only pre-register your intention to reserve the handset when that option becomes available once more.

The original Nokia 3310 has the reputation of being invincible. The specs of the 2017 model feature a 2.4-inch color display with a 240 x 320 resolution. 16MB of native storage is inside with a 32GB capacity microSD slot available for those seeking additional storage. The handset uses Nokia 30+ OS, and there is a 2MP camera with LED flash. The removable 1200mAh battery offers superb battery life measured in days, not hours. The Nokia 3310 features a built-in FM radio and MP3 player, and it also carries a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Nokia 3310 has EDGE (2.5G) connectivity. Those who owned the original Apple iPhone will remember how slow browsing was on EDGE. The Nokia 3310 does offer what Clove calls "bare bones browsing." If you plan on using the internet often, this is not the phone for you.

So far, Clove has not released a statement on why it has halted pre-orders and is simply allowing consumers to pre-register for the phone. As soon as we hear something, we will update this story.

I can't help but laugh at this silly notion of a Nokia return totally worthless to say the least. Nobody needs or wants a refurbished, boring, uneventful, and drastically overrated phone with NO PURPOSE or true productivity abilities. The 3310 looks just stupid as its failed attempt, silly waste of time. Barf on Nokia ! At the end of the day it's pretty much plain and simple nothing beats Samsung or the Galaxy products they are Android nothing else matters.

"Nobody needs or wants a refurbished, boring, uneventful, and drastically overrated phone with NO PURPOSE or true productivity abilities" According to the worldwide preorders data, it looks like that MILLIONS disagree with you. "At the end of the day it's pretty much plain and simple nothing beats Samsung or the Galaxy products they are Android nothing else matters". Well, Nokia 6 is sold out within few minutes after its launch in every market. Moreover, Nokia haven't released any flagship just yet, so we can't talk about this and compare now. Finally, Samsung haven't had any chance competing with Nokia along 14 years, until Nokia moved to the notorious WP. So, let's wait and see what could Nokia do in the Android arena in the next couple of years before judging that way!.

Better start reporting that guy. He's obviously a reverse troll, he had an account here before but was banned after a few days.

What ignorant dribble, because the world has 7 billion of you right? Phone has NO PURPOSE? It's a phone, it makes calls, that's the purpose of a phone. Samsung IS NOT ANDROID. Plenty of things in life matter besides Android, unless you would really rather sleep with Samsung than have a spouse or family.

"Plenty of things in life matter besides Android, unless you would really rather sleep with Samsung than have a spouse or family." what does this have to do with his comment? I think it's safe to assume he meant in the context of mobile devices....not life.

Someone's not fond of competition here. Also, comparing a smartphone to a feature phone is dumb thing to do. It's like comparing a sports car to a family van. Both can take you from point A to point B but differs from the journey. A sports car can be fast but a family van is well built.

You're something, I give you that. By the way, Samsung is not Android. HTC was the first manufacturer to push Android out to market with the help of Google since their Windows mobile phones had no chance against iOS, in 2008 they pushed out Android. Samsung didn't arrive to the market with Android until 2010.
