Updated on August 28, 2012

Thousands of different models of cell phones have been produced since the birth of cellular networks. The first ever model (which weighed about 1kg) was produced in 1973 and was not commercially available; the first mobile phone available for sale was produced 10 years later.

Since then, mobile phones market has blossomed and nearly 5.8 billion phone subscriptions have been established.

To some it might not be a surprise that the manufacturer of the best selling cell phone is Nokia. The Finnish manufacturer has long history in producing reliable phones which stand the test of time and come with a relatively low price.

The best selling mobile phone is actually Nokia 1100. Since late 2003 when it was made available in the markets, this small handset has sold more than 250 million devices in the world.

Nokia 1100 was a simple GSM phone targeted towards developing countries and offered standard cell phone features, which means only calls and SMS. That made it an easy and reliable phone which could be used by elderly people as well as those who did not care for advanced features of other mobile phones of its time, which bragged for polyphonic ringtones, colored screens and cameras, while also kept its price tag way lower than its competitors.

      A truly classic phone. I actually have the Nokia ring tone from this unit as my default ringtone on my iPhone! Interesting hub.
