It was 2013 when Nokia announced that the Nokia brand for mobile phones will be discontinued. One era of history would be ending. This was starting point for the initiative to collect all ever made Nokia branded mobile phone models to a one collection. It was also a start for the journey to learn more about the phones and the people behind the scenes; design, product development, marketing, manufacturing….
We have two criteria for collection items; all phones need to be working and you could make call with them. This would enable further generations to test the devices and see how the evolution has been since these phone ancestors. Of course some of the network technology is not in place anymore but still the touch and feel are there. Collection includes many variants of the phone models. However, many of them are still missing. If you want to donate one, please contact us and help to develop the story further.
When Phones Were Fun – And Nokia Was Crazy
You remember Nokia for the legendary 3310 that no one could break, or for the Nokia N95 that had all the features (before having-all-the-features was a thing). But you might not remember that, for a few years in the mid-oughts, while The Killers were killing the Billboards and Google was first going public … Nokia was going a little bit crazy.
