The Nokia 3310 is an iconic device. It was one of the best-selling mobile phones that the Finnish company ever made. A lot has happened in the industry since then. Nokia is no longer the behemoth it once was. The company isn’t even making its own phones anymore. Nevertheless, the Nokia 3310 was resurrected earlier this year and it has now been confirmed that the 3G Nokia 3310 will soon be available for purchase in the United States.

Nokia sold its mobile business to Microsoft several years ago but even that didn’t do much for the latter’s position in the smartphone market. It’s no longer an area of focus for Microsoft.

Nokia has since licensed its brand to another Finnish company called HMD Global. It’s actually the one behind this new lineup of Nokia-branded handsets. It was HMD Global that brought back the Nokia 3310 in a new package.

The 2G version of the new Nokia 3310 was released in other markets earlier this year. It didn’t say whether the 3G version will be released in the United States. However, those who are interested in picking one up can head over to Best Buy right now and pre-order the 3G Nokia 3310 in the U.S. for $59.99. The handset will be released later this month on October 29th.

The 3G Nokia 3310 is going to be compatible with T-Mobile and AT&T in the United States. If you’re thinking about using one on Verizon and Sprint, you’re out of luck as it doesn’t support CDMA networks.
