Nokias were the best-selling mobiles for 14 whole years until 2012, and many of us will still think fondly on our first Nokia.

Nokia rose to prominence in the mobile sector with the launch of the Nokia 1100, the best selling mobile phone of all time.

Currently, partnered with Microsoft, Nokia are aiming at both ends of the market, with their Symbian OS-powered phones catering to the feature phone audience and the Windows Phone 8-based Lumia-series to the high-end smartphone user.
