The iconic Nokia 3310 has turned 19 and those who used it could not hide their love for the strongest and one of the most popular mobile phones ever on social media platforms. Born on September 1, 2000, the device had a dark blue body, emitted a deep green light from its tiny screen, and housed a charming game called “Snake”.
An entire generation grew up loving the iconic Nokia 3310. Then came the Nokia 1100 in 2003 – a sturdy affair with an in-built torch – which quickly became the best-selling consumer electronics device of its time. That was the Golden Age of Nokia – with hardly a competitor in sight. As people realized that its the birth anniversary of Nokia 3310, they took to Twitter. Here are some tweets:
