Nokia 1100, The Best-Selling Mobile Phone History

Today tends to blind us, and that the market has a short memory doesn’t help to remember great successes of the past except that triunfasen with a name associated with certain movements. It is the case of Nokia, whose best-known phone may be the Nokia 3310, often mentioned with jokes about its indestructibility. Who has not seen images with Thor wielding a 3310 rather than his Mjolnir.
However, in the era in which Nokia dominated the market, something which we mentally associate with the age of the dinosaurs, there was a phone that made all the difference to such an extent that today even it has not been passed. Until Nokia left the throne of mobile telephony to make way for smartphones, your Nokia 1100 entered the history books. A phone record.

Born in 2003, died in 2007

Nokia decided to circulate the Nokia 1100 in 2003 for about $100, or 114 euros at the time, and the phone there is not even among the highlights of that year, proof that the footprint of the 1100 was leaving with the passage of time. In the year of its launch the 1100 racing with the Nokia 6600, with color display, Ericsson P900 with your kind of mix between PDA and mobile phone, or the BlackBerry 6230, one of the best sellers of that year.
The 1100 was never a phone with spectacular capabilities but it fulfilled it by then calling to a mobile phone. A phone with function flashlight, with up to 36 tones to choose from, and the famous Nokia ringtones composer to store up to 7 shades created by us, and the Snake II, the mythical serpent. It also offered other features such as timer, calculator or a chat function.
There were up to five variants of the Nokia 1100, counting the original, including one that added a small WAP 1.1 browser
Nokia was always fond of performing variations on their own terminals, something akin to what we see today with some smartphones changing concrete components to adapt to certain markets. With this Nokia 1100 we saw it also, and there was a Nokia 1100a network GSM 900/1800, Nokia 1100b for GSM 850/1900 networks, and even two small variants as Nokia 1101 or 1108, with changes in the backlight or the addition of a small WAP 1.1 browser.
With its monochrome display and its reinforced rubber design, the Nokia 1100 got a double trophy in 2007. With the end of its manufacture, the 1100 became in the best-selling mobile phone of history, with more than 250 million units around the world, and also in the best-selling electronic device so far beating gadgets such as the Nintendo DS and PlayStation 2. A post that probably do not keep today.

Some curiosities of a phone record

Similar sales figures as those obtained by the Nokia 1100 throughout his life were sufficient as to unify certain references around the device. Like the fact that he has become a desire nothing hidden in the heart of the world of crime. Effect of origin on the device makes to possible to its rescheduling, so SMS could intercept received and sent with it.
This defect has made that some criminals can impersonate specific users and, through the messages sent by the banks themselves, steal money from their accounts. Why more than enough so the phone would reach astronomical figures in the second hand market. But it is not there but in 2005 appeared a Nokia 1100 in a case of drug the Dutch police. As we say, more than 250 million units sold are to be tucked “into all scours” the Nokia 1100.
Designed for emerging countries, the 1100 was not only extremely resistant but also “hackable”
Another fact is that this Nokia 1100 was designed by Miki Mehandjiysky, someone who can make you not sound anything but that it’s a bulgaro-americano designer who had something in mind when concieved the 1100. The phone would go to emerging markets and hence to become especially resistant against dust and water, Perhaps the toughest Nokia came to put in circulation at the time of the feature phones.
Another curious fact and that it also has to do with a record, although the brand rather than the model, is that in 2005 it sold the number 1,000 million Nokia phone. The sale occurred in Nigeria and Yes, It was a Nokia 1100. But with those sales figures, it doesn’t surprise us to help Nokia achieve such figure.
So you know what, it is not an iPhone or a Samsung, or any other manufacturer which today govern the market with fist of glass and metal. History best selling phone was a Nokia with monochrome display, rubber edges and protection against dust and water. Nokia 1100 made history in its own right and, unfortunately, of the 3310 is talking about less than. But with the return of the latter, it is rather logical.
