From the Mobria Talkman to the new 3310: Nokia phones - in pictures

The first of Nokia s mobile phones was a car phone produced by its Mobria partnership with TV-maker Salora.

It was available on the world s first roaming international mobile phone network called the Nordic Mobile Telephone service set up by Mobria.

The 7110 was notable for a couple of reasons: it was the first Series 40 phone, had a WAP browser and a navi-roller bar thing, and it was the first mobile phone with T9 predictive text input.

Before the 7110, SMS messages had to be bashed out using multi-tap only.

It wasn t the Matrix phone – that was the 8110 – but it looked like it and the spring-loaded slider seemed exciting.

One of the most popular phones in history, selling more than 160m units since release, and the first mass-market phone with an internal antenna.
