his post will be focused on how nokia went from producing products like papers, bicycle, car tires, footwear, communication cables, electricity generation machineries, televisions, aluminum and capacitors to producing mobile phones. Lets go!!

Nokia started producing military as well as commercial mobile radio communications technology in the 1960s. It was in 1964 when the company started to create VHF-radio with Salora Oy. The two companies started to develop mobile phones for the NMT network standard. In 1982, they introduced their first car phone called the Mobira Senator, which weighted a massive 9.8 kg(almost 10kg!!).In 1984, the merging with Salora Oy made the company to create its telecommunication branch named Nokia-Mobira Oy. In the same year, the company also launched the Mobira Talk man, the world’s first transportable phone.

Nokia introduced one of the world’s first handheld phones in 1987 and this was called Mobira City man 900. During those days, the City man was one of the most light-weight phones having only about 800 g. But its tag price was approximately 4,500 Euros(much more than what an IPhone would cost you now!!!). Although that was very expensive, City man was still considered a success. The success of Nokia continued until the world’s first satellite call was made in 1994 using a Nokia mobile phone. And in 1997, Nokia introduced a classic game highly associated with the company-Snake.It is still one of the most played Nokia games(I still play it myself!!).
