The beauty of progressive enhancement

Nokia released an updated version of its iconic Nokia 3310 about 3 years ago. It was affordable for me (€60/$65), so I had to get one. It came with a 2 MP camera, a battery that lasts 30 days (up to 22 hours talk time), 2G, 16 MB storage, the original Snake game, and a browser.
