The Nokia 3310 to get a Windows Phone refresh, but only if you dream hard enough

The Nokia 3310 is an iconic phone. Nokia released the mobile phone way back in the fourth quarter of 2000. It went on to sell over 126 million units. The inability to run Windows Phone is by far the biggest drawback of trying to use the Nokia 3310 today. Which is why we’re pretty stoked that Nokia is giving the 3310 a modern refresh. Live tiles and 41-megapixel sensor? Sign us up!

Nokia has stayed true to the original design of the 3310, but has added a few modern twists to the internals. Inside you’ll find the same camera power that you get in the Lumia 1020. How about a 41-megapixel sensor with Zeiss optics and Xenon flash? Baller.

Here’s Juha Alakarhu, head of imaging tech at Nokia, on the refreshed 3310:

“I’m really excited that we’ve found a way to marry our innovative PureView technology with such a beloved device. With its durable design and iconic look, we think even more people will enjoy our signature PureView magic.”

Of course this is an April Fools’ joke. But it’s pretty hilarious. Head on over to Nokia Conversations for the full specs of this fictitious phone.
