Nokia 1100While researching information on businesses this morning, I came across the Story of Nokia page. Did you know:

  • Nokia’s history begins in 1865, when Fredrik Idestam built a wood pulp mill in southern Finland?
  • Nokia gets its name from the Nokianvirta river, where Idestam built his second mill?
  • Nokia Corporation was officially formed in 1967 with the merger of Nokia Ab (Fredrik Idestam’s company), Finnish Rubber Works and Finnish Cable?
  • Nokia decided to focus on the telecommunications industry in 1992, after Jorma Ollila became the company’s President and CEO?
  • The world’s first satellite call was made in 1994 using a Nokia GSM handset?
  • Nokia sold its billionth phone -a Nokia 1100 – in Nigeria in 2005?
