Nokia 3100 - Pocket-lint

Nokia 3100 Review


As soon as I saw this small phone I liked it straight away, I liked the size and I liked the design. I especially liked the glow in the dark covers. I think that Nokia has aimed this phone at the younger generation but I think that this is one handset...

The design could be stronger

Nokia 3100


Look wise, you may think the Nokia 3100 looks somewhat like the 2100, and you're right. In many ways externally it does, but on the inside you will find things like a colour screen, MMS, Java games and applications, and even animated screen savers. The...
