Are phone users in Odisha going to ditch smartphones?

Bhubaneswar: Remember the first phone you owned? Yes, nostalgia is enlivened watching the launch of reboot Nokia 3310 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) this year at Barcelona in Spain.
Nokia 3310 made the comeback and drew the attention just like our favourite hitter Virat Kohli who is hitting 6’s and 4’s after being away from cricket for a short gap.
But, in India, where many still think twice or more before spending as low as Rs 3,500 to get a smartphone and mobile data charges as extra, Nokia 3310 might be adjudged as the best option among them looking for a phone to fulfil basic requirements.
One-month long standby battery life of Nokia 3310, as claimed by the marketing company HMD Global, is another unique selling proposition of the featured phone in India.
Knowing well Odisha, one of the major states in India, and the needs of its people, some gadget lovers here believe Nokia 3310 will be handy among many phone users after its pan-India launch, probably next month.
