The Nokia phone people had their fingers on the pulse of British popular culture, at least amongst young business people in the second half of the 90s. The 3110 came with a new set of ringtones: Jingle Bells, William Tell, Mozart's Symphony Number 40 and The Liberty Bell composed by John Philip Sousa, known by most people as the theme tune to Monty Python's Flying Circus.

The 3110 was a mid range business phone. It did not have the features of the 8110 banana phone launched a year earlier, but allowed Nokia to replace the trusty old 2110.

As well as the Monty Python theme tune, the Nokia 3110 introduced the now familiar Navi Key, making scrolling through Nokia's menu system a breeze.
