Nokia Company History

The Phones of Nokia Company History

Nokia Company History

Hasn't the mobile phone come a long way, the capability of a phone these days is greater than a personal computer of not so long ago. Nokia is at the front when it comes to the major players in the history of mobile phones. They have an interesting story and even more interesting origin...

Nokia Company History

Beginnings of the Nokia Company History were in 1865 when a wood-pulp mill was set up in Southern Finland. It sold products with the brand name Nokia.

A community called Nokia was started and still exists on the riverbank of Emäkoski in southern Finland.

The Finnish Rubber Works started manufacturing in Nokia in the 1920s and branded its products, including gumboots, as Nokia.

The Finnish Cable Works also setup in Nokia, it produced cables for phone networks. By 1967 all three companies had merged to form the Nokia Group.

Nokia developed a digital switcher for telephone exchanges and also helped develop the world's first mobile phone network.

By the late 1980s Nokia had helped develop the GSM (Global Standard for Mobile communications) and had built more than 60 GSM networks in 31 countries around the world.

The company developed high quality, user friendly mobile phones that have made it the world market leader. I have used a Nokia since my first ‘mobile phone’ was one of those Motorola bricks with the huge battery pack – haven’t we come a long way.

      I really appreciate the Nokia Brand, but the only worry I have, May be If I am not mistaken, the company does not strategize agressively to compete its concurrents (Samsong, ZTE and others.

      Hi V.K.SRIVASTAVA, thanks for the comment, I too have always had a Nokia - they are super reliable

      Hi, I’m V.K. Srivastava and I’ using Nokia from past 15 years approx. [i.e. from Nokia 5100 to Nokia 5800] especially for two reasons:

      1.Battery backup

      2. Rough & tuff handset

      For such Goodwill [Battery backup & Rough & tuff handset] its price is quite higher than other handset Company. Almost from last 2 years, now some other 3-4 branded handset companies give tuff competition to Nokia in Indian market on the basis of some advance features / options, These are:-

      1. Dual Sim

      2. Metallic body

      3. Higher mega pixel Camera [Sony Satio – 12.1 mega pixel]

      4. Large Display screen. [Sony Satio – 3.5”approx., LG-BL-10cm]

      5. Slimmer in size

      6. Blinking light features on the top right corner of the handset. [Samsung R220]

      I suggest Nokia to work hard on my above suggested points [features / options] if they really want to maintain Monopoly in Indian Mobile market as like earlier because large group of Indian people wants above mentions features in their Nokia handset in cheap price because cost of living in India is much lower than other countries. Personally I’m anxiously waiting for Nokia X6 [16 / 32 GB] in Indian market almost with the price of Nokia 5800 or quit higher.

      My good wishes to Nokia
