The Nokia 3310 – The Legend is Reborn!

The Nokia 3310 – The Legend is Reborn!

The original Nokia 3310 had become somewhat a legend, some may even argue it was the most durable phone ever built. Throw it off a 2 floor balcony, drive over it, drop on the concrete and it would just keep on soldiering on like a Boss! 17 years down the road and Nokia decided to revive that legend once again. So, call it, nostalgia or call it whatever you like, the Nokia 3310 is a sight for sore eyes! The 2017 version of the Nokia 3310 does looked like the phone has evolved in all this time. The phone’s body is much thinner than its older brother, but has maintained that classic curved look, with dimensions 115.60 x 51.00 x 12.80 (height x width x thickness), on the front you will find a 2.4 inch QVGA polarized colored curved display (240×320 pixels). The keys on the keypad (you don’t hear that, quite often these days) are very soft and its a lot of fun typing on them. On the back of the device you shall find a 2MP camera with LED flash, which to be honest, can take some decent shots in lighted areas or even day time shots are not bad. You do get a 3.5mm headphone jack, so you can either listen to the inbuilt FM radio or listen to your own tunes, thanks to the 32GB microSD card support. The phone itself houses 16MB storage, which is plenty for keeping old text messages, or even keeping a few songs or pictures. Talking about the software the device runs on Nokia Series 30+ (and NOT android as a lot of people had predicted it to be). The UI is quite simple and does have that classic feel to it. While we are on this topic, the Nokia 3310 did come with its share of games and one in particular got a lot of stardom and still does till date. That game was “Snake”, we used to spend hours trying to see how long we could make that 2D snake grow and to our utmost joy Nokia has brought it back as well. The new Snake keeps the classic feel to it, but does add a lot of modern elements to it, like the snake can actually travel diagonally now, which makes the game even more challenging but still fun. The Nokia 3310 comes with a removable 1200mAh battery which promises to last and after our rigorous testing it does actually last a week easily! Even longer depending on how you use it. Other than that the device comes with Bluetooth 3.0 to help you transfer data easily. It comes in two versions a...

Telenor Group survey: Pakistan’s millennials point to artificial intelligence as possible gateway to achieving peace

Telenor Group survey: Pakistan’s millennials point to artificial intelligence as possible gateway to achieving peace

Telenor Group today released the findings of its regional online survey that assessed the attitudes of Asia’s millennials towards technology and social impact, as well as the support they feel necessary to become future leaders committed to peace. Organized to support Telenor Youth Forum 2017 recruitment, the online survey engaged 2,500 respondents aged 15 to 30 years in Asian markets where Telenor is present. They include Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Malaysia, Pakistan, and Thailand. Pakistan’s youth say they’re most passionate for education for all The multi-market online survey found that Pakistan’s millennials are most passionate for providing opportunities for children to get an education (35 percent of survey takers), followed by unemployment among youth (21 percent). Other global issues that Pakistani millennials are driven to make change include climate change and global warming (20 percent), the stigma surrounding mental health issues (14 percent), and gender inequality (10 percent). Resolving many of the same issues is also a year-long mission of Telenor Youth Forum delegates, whose tech-driven proposals were funded for research and prototyping at a pitching session held in Bangkok last month. Asia’s millennials feel strongly about the role of technology and its impact when relating to the pursuit of their social causes. More than half of Pakistan’s millennials (51 percent) polled believe that enabling equal opportunities and access to education will benefit most from technology advancements. Selected by the second most number of respondents was confronting climate change and global warming (23 percent). Artificial intelligence for world peace, why not? When asked about the technology that has the largest potential to give rise to peace, 34 percent of Pakistan’s respondents placed their bets on artificial intelligence, followed by the Internet of Things (29 percent), and virtual reality (28 percent). Across all six markets, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things and virtual reality rank consistently in the top three – suggesting the vast potential seen in these future technologies by the Internet generation. The most innovative and entrepreneurial generation of all-time Another consistent trend across all markets is the youth’s perspectives of their generation. Regionally, 37 percent of the millennials polled described themselves as ‘the most innovative and entrepreneurial generation in history’, which reflects a similar proportion in Bangladesh (37 percent), Malaysia (38 percent) and Pakistan (38 percent). Education is most critical to shape tomorrow’s peace leaders Youths in all the surveyed markets ranked education as the most critical form of support in order to enable them to become tomorrow’s peace leaders. This finding was consistent in all six Asia markets, including Pakistan where 45 percent of its respondents believe leaders today should invest in developing a more inclusive education system that gives everyone equal...
