The brand name of Nokia comes from the river Nokianvirta from Finland whose banks were the location of the second Nokia Wood Pulp Mill opened by a mining engineer named, Fredrik Idestam in 1871. It was not until 1960 though, that Nokia entered the telecommunication equipment business with production of radio transmission equipments for Finnish Cable Works. Nokia also holds the distinction of being the first company to build a fully digital telephone exchange in Europe, a feat achieved in 1982. Post the adoption of GSM as a digital standard in 1991, the first ever GSM phone call was made on a Nokia phone using a Nokia build network for the operator called Radiolinja, following which Nokia was awarded contracts to supply GSM networks in several other countries. It was around then when a strategic decision was made to make telecommunications the core business of the company.
It was post this decision that Nokia went on to become the largest vendor of mobile phones in the period starting from 1998 to about 2008. With its line of feature phones doing well, Nokia entered the smartphone space too with its Symbian smartphones and was arguably the biggest player of smartphones until the iPhone and Android decided to write the rules of the success game themselves. Before the iPhone was announced, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic was the ultimate dream phone given it was the first real consumer focussed touch device, with Symbian on board. Despite the presence of likes of Palm and HTC, which catered to a very niched set of audience, Nokia was truly people's brand coming up with several legendary phones in their N and E series as well as devices like Nokia 6600, Nokia 7610, 5110, 1100 and more, which for one reason or the other attained legendary status. Nokia devices have always been known for their superior build quality and great ergonomics as well as remaining ahead of the curve when it comes to the image taking capabilities. Nokia produced the Nokia Pureview 808, which was the first phone to pack in a 41MP sensor.
Seeing the major uproar in the smartphone demands, Nokia tied up with Microsoft for being the single largest device manufacturer of Windows Phone devices with Lumia range of phones. The Lumia 710 and 800 were among the very first Lumia devices running Windows Phone. It was followed by some very noteworthy models including the Nokia Lumia 900, 820, 925 and 1020, which was the true successor to the 808. The Lumia range catered to all segments of the budget including: low end, middle and higher end. In 2013, it was announced that the mobility division of Nokia would be acquired by Microsoft, which would result in all Lumia devices using the brand name of Microsoft rather than Nokia. The acquisition was completed in 2014, which is when the first Microsoft branded Lumia device was released. Today, Nokia continues to concentrate on IT solutions as well as working on mapping solutions through Here Maps. It was announced recently that Nokia would be returning to the mobile phone business in 2016.
