Technobyte: Nokia goes retro and the latest from Mobile World Congress

MWC, or Mobile World Congress to give it its full name, is the world’s biggest phone show.

This year it’s happening from February 27 to March 2, so there’s not long to wait.

Many of 2017’s most high-profile handsets are likely to be announced over the course of the show, including the Sony Xperia X2, Huawei P10 and LG G6; but it’s not just phones that we’ll see, with tablets, smartwatches and more likely to be on show too.

The new Nokia 3310 takes the iconic silhouette of the original and reimagines it for 2017.

The custom designed user interface brings a fresh look to a classic, whilst the 2.4” polarized and curved screen window makes for better readability in sunlight.

Remember when you could leave the house without a charger? Well, with the new Nokia 3310, you can. It comes with a long-lasting battery, so you can talk all day, or leave the phone on standby for up to a month3. When needed, a Micro-USB port makes charging simple.
