MWC 2017: The Return of Nokia

So this year’s Mobile World Congress has kicked off in Barcelona, Spain, and it seems that Nokia is back in a big way. Now I could start off with their new and rather lackluster Android phones, but you and I both know what you’re really here for: the re-imagining of the Finnish phone-maker’s iconic 3310. Here it is—and yes, it plays Snake.

Now the bad news: it’s a 2G phone, and only supports Asian and European bands at that. Here are the full specs from its product page:
