The history of NOKIA

In the world of mobile phones, Finnish company Nokia is king. The icy nation of Finland, near the top of the world wouldn't seem to be the most likely place for electronic innovations, but a company with humble beginnings transformed itself into the largest manufacturer of mobile phones in the world. The journey for Nokia to become the leader in this race is a seemingly unlikely one, but it became one of the world's great success stories.

From there, thanks to years of working with NMT, Nokia now focused upon the development of GSM;.in 1991, Nokia equipment was used to make the first GSM call. In 1992, telecommunications was declared to be the main focus of the corporation. The Nokia 1101 was the first GSM handset released, and established the pattern of Nokia branding most of their phones with a numeric identifier. Things really picked up with the first satellite call being made on Nokia equipment, as well as the first Internet capable (WAP-enabled) phone. By 1998, they were the world leader, and by 2005, had sold their one-billionth phone.

From its humble beginnings on the banks of a Finnish river, through the social, economic and political upheavals of the 20th century, Nokia emerged as has maintained its position as a leader in not only the telecommunications field, but changing how people live their lives. Everyday, millions across the globe rely upon Nokia mobile phones in their personal and professional lives. Nokia continues to live up to its slogan: "Connecting People."
