Nokia 3310 Will Not Be Available In The US
Sadly, not everyone will be able to acquire the new Nokia 3310. The region which won’t have access to the smartphone is the US. HMD Global which is the owner of the Nokia brand has officially confirmed that during the first months, the smartphone will not be available in the US. The reason behind this is that Nokia 3310 uses 900/1800 MHz bandwidth and AT&T only offers 850 bandwidths. This means that US residents will not be able to receive or place calls with the device.
Patrick Mercanton who is the Global Head of HMD’s Marketing has announced that Nokia 3310 will eventually arrive in the US as well. Although, it might take some while for Nokia to create deals with the US network carriers. As everyone knows by now, the large majority of smartphones sold through in the US are through official carriers vendors.
