Earlier this week, Nokia brought the old 3310 feature phone back to life and gave it a new look altogether. While many people are upset with the redesign since it looks more funkier than anything we have seen recently in the world of mobile technology, other are happy with the fact that at least the phone is back to life. However, if you think that Nokia has not justice to the design of the phone and if you want something more premium (and have a lot of money to spend), then you might want to consider the Caviar Nokia 3310 Supremo Putin.
As the name suggests this particular unit of the phone features the face of Russia’s President. The phone is made out of a meshed titanium housing and has gold trimming across the body. It has the face of Putin, and Russian national anthem etched into the outer shell of the body. This is truly a luxurious piece of art indeed. This Nokia 3310 is not for everyone of course, and it is only targetted to the true enthusiasts.
If you are familiar with Caviar, then you already know that this is not the first time that we are seeing something like this from them. Caviar is known for creating such masterpieces, and this is merely another creation of them. They are already quite popular with similar creations with iPhones, and now they will certainly be known for this as well. Talking about the price, the Nokia 3310 Supremo Putin is priced at 99,000 Russian Roubles which roughly translates to about $1700 or 1.13 lakhs in INR.
On the other hand, if you don’t have that much money or if you are not particularly interested in having the face of political leaders on your phones then it is well and good as you will be saving a ton of money which can find another place to be invested in. Also, underneath this shiny metal, we have the same Nokia 3310 which anyone can buy for as low as 49 euros. The extra money which you are paying here is purely for aesthetics part which might not even matter so much for most people.
Also, if you still somehow made up your mind on buying this, then you will be presented the phone in a really premium looking red box which will also have your USB cable, stereo headsets, etc. With that said, let us know what do you think about this madness and would you even consider something like this or see someone buying this?
