Nokia 3110 Evolve is the latest in a series of environmental initiatives from the company. For example, Nokia was the first manufacturer to put alerts into its devices to encourage people to unplug their chargers. The power that could be saved globally by all Nokia phone users unplugging their chargers when no longer needed is equivalent to enough energy to power 100,000 average-size European homes. In February 2006, Nokia also introduced new compact packaging that reduced materials used by 54%, a move which by the end of this year will have resulted in 5,000 fewer trucks needed to distribute products, reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions, and savings of EUR 100 million.

With tri-band GSM/EDGE, 262k color screen, a 1.3 megapixel camera, MP3 player, FM radio, a microSD card slot, and stereo Bluetooth. Nokia hasn't mentioned anything about Nokia 3110 Evolve's pricing or availability.
