It is also the first cellphone outside Japan to have 3D graphics on mobile phones, before Symbian and OpenGL ES.

Design[edit]

The 3410 is a compact, but somewhat heavy phone (weight:114 g, battery included). It employs up and down buttons for menu navigation. The on/off/profile button is a stiff black button located on the top of the phone.

3D graphics[edit]

This is one of the first cellular phones released outside Japan to feature mobile 3D graphics (notably the animated screensavers and the mobile game Munkiki's Castles). Despite it has a monochrome screen and a 96x65 screen resolution, it predated OpenGL ES by a few years and includes all essential rendering features. It was only used in 3 applications (3D text generator, animated screensavers and the mobile game Munkiki's Castles), however it was dated by later standards (e.g. Mophun by Synergenix, Swerve by Superscape and OpenGL ES 1.0), due to its low polygon count and lack of texture mapping. It has also includes an authoring tool for 3ds Max, which converts the high polygon count 3D model file to its device-optimised low polygon count model to its device.[2]

Differences between Nokia 3310 and 3410[edit]

  • Higher resolution display
  • Dedicated call and hang buttons
  • Call silencer
