The Nokia 3110 classic is a standard shaped "candybar" vintage mobile phone with its own 1.3 MB camera.
the phone uses the Series 40 operating system and operated on GSM networks within the 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, or 1900 MHz bands.
The phone supported data operation using EDGE (Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution) connections. EDGE was also referred to as EGSM.
The phone is easy to use and has large buttons on the keypad which make typing messages and e-mails easy. The 1.8-inch display supports a maximum display resolution of 128 × 160 pixels
The phone was marketed as either the 3110c or 3110 classic dependent upon the region. It can sometimes be confused with the basic Nokia 3110 with which it shared its number, but the 3110 which was launched in 2000 was a very different phone to the more advanced 3110 classic launched in 2007.
