  • It turns out Nokia didn’t have any impact on mobile phone industry. Why is that, OP? Scared your taskmaster would cut your share if you ever mentioned Nokia?

        and Nokia hasn’t???

        No mention of the Nokia N95, or any of the communicator models.

        Motorola only was the front runner 1970 – 1985, it has been up and mostly down since then..  specially the past 10 years.

        Nokia has introduced the most revolutionary models on the market, and the only mention  is  Nokia 1100?   …  for instance the first smartphone…  The first touchscreen mobile .. Nokia.

        Where is the Nokia N900? by the way..

    Agreed on the Nokia part. Not sure why they haven’t included the Finnish company to the list.

  • Bhavanishankar

    ha ha,, funny that the Nokia is not included here…

    Why looks like that the iPhone launches on 1997?

    Confusing and dirty
