We are all familiar with the Nokia 2100 which featured the iconic ringtone and the snake game. This made it the world’s largest mobile phone provider, a position it held for 14 years. Initially, Nokia had its foot in every market imaginable, and it was quite different from the Nokia we know today.

They operated in TV manufacturing, paper production, plastic, and chemicals. Furthermore, In the 70s, Nokia shifted its focus to creating a new digital switch for telephone exchanges. This started the long journey for Nokia to develop telephone technology that helped transform the cellular system used around the world. In 1996, Nokia outpaced all of its competitors by multiplying its revenue 5 times over. However, the launch of Apple’s iPhone, which was the first-ever smartphone to feature a multitouch display, marked the beginning of the end for Nokia.
