10 memorable Nokia handsets that will never be forgotten

10 memorable Nokia handsets that will never be forgotten
Nokia has been making a lot of noise of late, especially when its Lumia 900 is now all official – with pricing and all. Currently, we’re at the moment right before the storm when it’s all calm, but we know that something big is about to happen in the near futures. No doubt there are going to be high expectations riding on the back of the Nokia Lumia 900, especially when top-shelf Nokia devices have been a rarity in the US market. However, before it’s able to singe itself into the memory of consumers all around, we really need to look back and pay homage to the past devices that have seemingly proliferated Nokia’s presence.
Ranging from barebones handsets long discontinued, to some smartphones that have made their impact, there’s no arguing there are quite a few memorable ones that panned out to become successful. Some of us may be spoiled, but without a doubt, these devices need to remembered in order to knowingly comprehend what the upcoming Nokia Lumia 900 will need to live up to. Without any further interruption, we present to you 10 memorable Nokia devices that will never be forgotten. Let us know what others you believe should’ve made the list.

What about Nokia 3310, 3210 and 6600?

I had a 6620 myself. Although I never had one personally, the N95 was indeed epic. The most powerful Nokia I ever had was the E75, but my all-time favorite still has to be the 9300... I would add the 9300 to the list for having that awesome half-laptop-like form-factor and massive keyboard I always enjoyed, as well as the 6010 for being just plain tough... like a brick.

Talking about SIEMENS, I remember, long, long time ago I had SIEMENS M55. But I didn't had external camera for SIEMENS M55. :( My firs mobile phone was ALCATEL One Touch View db. Here is some photos of ALCATEL One Touch View db (a.k.a. Alcatel OT View db @): 1)http://goo.gl/XnS4i 2)http://goo.gl/g0yAu Also there was a possibility to use standard AAA type batteries instead of standard battery. Like this, but it is not ALCATEL One Touch View db:http://goo.gl/tIzkh

Those were either the 8210 or 8215, I never personally owned those but I envy my classm8 back in High School who sports a brand new 8215. Heck if I see one perfectly conditioned one today I'd buy it any day.

The Nokia 5165 and the 6230 were memorable devices. Remember all those funky keypads Nokia use to come up with. A serious look back on the link.http://www.phonearena.com/news/Nokia-changes-its-naming-system-again-goes-back-to-pure-numbers_id20806

I still think the n8 is the best Nokia equal to 800 best camera phone still at the moment Belle is really good and for the price no other phone can touch it

You really have to include the Nokia 1100. With one quarter of a billion (with a B) sold, it was the definition of a cell phone for a long time. Then there's the 8110 of Matrix fame.

Woot the 1100's built in flash light was epic in either ways. It was my second phone and I had it when I was in back college, sadly lost it due to carelessness.
