Earlier this month, we covered a report from Malaysian blog VTechgraphy that said that the Nokia 3310 (2017) is expected to go on sale this month, with the rest of the line coming the next month or in June. Now, an Austrian retailer, as discovered by Winfuture.de, listed the new 3310 as available for €58, with shipping from April 28. Also, few Scandinavian outlets and East-European outlets have the 3310 (2017) listed on their web store, but some with no price, and all with no delivery date. We also reported about the German retailer Notebooksbilliger.de that opened up preorders for all new Nokia devices in early March, but in the meantime, all HMD made Nokia-branded Devices were removed from the store.
The price listed in some of the stores mentioned above is a little higher than HMD announced, but that is normal for Europen retailers, because of higher taxes and retailer margins, especially in the first weeks of a device’s availability on the market.
HMD still did not confirm the precise release date for their phones, but is continuing to say that the devices will be available this quarter, from April to June. HMD also promised the same sales start in all available markets, so if the sales start in Germany next week, so should it be for the whole world, or to be precise: Europe, Africa, Middle East, India and the APAC region countries.
