Nokia Mobile Phones – History and EvolutionWith a history that started with manufacturing paper, few would imagine that this Finnish Multinational would one day be a giant synonymous with mobile phones. Present in over 150 countries and pulling in huge sales numbers, Nokia is also the world’s largest manufacturer of mobile phones. They also hold a number of innovations like making one of the world’s first handheld devices in 1987.
You might have never guessed that Nokia used to make paper when it started out and not mobile phones. If you turn the clock way back to 1865, an Engineer names Fredrik Idestam started a wool pulp mill which started making paper. Buoyed with a high demand for paper, the company notched up impressive sales and quickly grew. Soon, Nokia expanded and acquired a part of the Finnish Cable Works that heralded their entry into the telecommunications space
In the 1960’s, Nokia started making radio communications sets for the military and commercial uses. With a joint venture with Salora oy, Nokia started co designing and developing mobile phones. Their first car phone called the Mobira Senator was a heavyweight at 9.8 kg and probably not a mobile phone you would be able to hold in your hand unless you are a body builder. However more importantly, it was a huge stepping stone for the Nokia in the nascent world of mobile phones.
As a result of the Nokia- Salora Oy collaboration, the world’s first transportable mobile phone (Mobira Talkman) was launched. Also keeping with its innovative streak, Nokia went on to make another path breaking mobile phone the Mobira Cityman 9000 which was one of the most light weight phones of its time.
