Top 10 Nokia Phones of All Time

Top 10 Nokia Phones of All Time

Nokia has been at the forefront of mobile technology for years now. But its recent acquisition by Microsoft almost certainly means we won't see any new Nokia-branded phones in the future. Here's a look at some of the best Nokia phones that were ever made.

Nokia-soft!
On September 3, 2013, Microsoft announced the USD 7.2 billion takeover of Nokia's Device and Services division, along with the license to Nokia's patents.
Nokia was a name that was synonymous with mobile phones. Till only about a few years ago, the automatic choice for anyone looking to buy a mobile phone was Nokia. The other phone brands were deemed way too insignificant to even be mentioned! How things have changed ...
Once a flourishing company which just seemed to do no wrong, today, the Finnish giant is just a shadow of what it used to be. It's glorious days long gone, the company seemed to make one last attempt at reviving its fortunes by releasing a line of new phones, and even unleashed an entire range of affordable feature phones. Although the phones were really good, they couldn't do enough to reverse the slump in the stock value of the company. On September 3, 2013, as what some might consider as putting the Finns out of their misery, Microsoft announced the takeover of Nokia's Devices and Services business.
As the world wonders what the future holds for 'Nokia-soft', it's almost a sense of nostalgia looking back at the many wonderful devices that rolled out of the stables of the Finns. Here's a trip down memory lane, as we look at some of the best mobile phones ever made by Nokia.
