Legendary Mobile phones of Nokia got extinct..!!

The news of Nokia’s comeback is making us nostalgic. The brand, which was once the only preferred brand in mobile phones, had some spectacular cellphones that catered to all kinds of brackets – the elderly and the youth. Each phone was a trendsetter and had a story associated with it. We look back and recall some old Nokia  models and the story behind them.

1. Nokia 9000 – The Communicator

The communicator was a messaging phone and was every traveller’s true friend. It did what Blackberry did way ahead of its years.

2. Nokia 5110 – The Business Phone

This phone was targeted at business people. It also introduced the addictive ‘Snake’ to us.

3. Nokia 3210 – The Colour Changer

They came with interchangeable colours. Green, yellow, red, or blue, it looked new each time you changed the cover.The GSM mobile phone

4. Nokia 7110 – The Swordfish Phone

It was called the Swordfish phone because John Travolta used it in the film The Swordfish.

5. Nokia 3600 – The Circular Phone

With this phone, Nokia decided to change the plain, vertical keypad to a circular one. It generated mixed reactions from customers.

6. Nokia N-Gage – The Gamer Phone

Nokia’s strategy of introducing a gaming phone backfired terribly as gamers called the phone a ‘taco’, because, well, it looked like a taco!

7. Nokia 7600 – The Teardrop

Wait, was this even a phone? With an unconventional design, this phone turned heads with its presence.

8. Nokia N90 – The Flexible Phone

This phone had the ‘moves’. It could turn into a cam-recorder and back to a phone with just one twist.

9. Nokia 1100 – The Parents’ Phone

This basic GSM phone was the easiest phone to use, therefore making it an ideal phone for the elderly. In 2011, it was owned by 250 million people, making it the most popular Nokia phone at that time.

10. Nokia 6600 – The Joystick Phone

The 6600 came with a joystick that controlled all its functions. It was quite a rage in India when it was introduced because of its distinct features.

11. Nokia 5300 – The Music Phone

Nokia 1

It was the most popular phone of all the XpressMusic collection. Known for its convenient playback feature, the phone was mostly preferred by the ladies.

12. Nokia 2300 – The FM phone

Remember listening to the radio on this one? People especially bought the 2300 for its spectacular FM features.

13. E72 – The Challenger

The E72 competed with the Blackberry as it was as efficient as the later. E72 was mostly preferred by the business class since it was user-friendly with mails and messages.

14.  7900 – The Prism

The 7900 broke into the ‘luxury’ category. The crystal shaped phone was targeted at the luxury class, but didn’t gain the popularity it was expected to gain.

15. 3310 – The Indestructible

You never had to worry about this phone getting damaged. STURDIEST THING EVER.
