The History Of Nokia Contract Phones
The journey of Nokia towards becoming a telecom giant began with the first step of founding the electronics section of its cable division in 1960 and the production of its first electronic device, called the pulse analyzer, in 1962, this electronic section was transformed into a division by 1967.
In 1966 Nokia in partnership with a company called Salora Oy, started working towards devising a car based radio telephone, and completed the project successfully. The product went online and achieved 100%coverage in 1978 and operated as the first commercially operated public mobile phone network in Finland. By 1979 Salora Oy merged completely with Nokia and with this merger came the birth of the first fully automatic cellular phone, or car phone in short. Another landmark in the history of Nokia was achieved after Nokia bought Salora Oy when in 1984; the world’s first transportable phone was invented and sold like hot cakes, not only as a niche but as also as a status symbol. By 1984 Nokia Solar Oy changed it name to Nokia Mobile Phones.
