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 the first WAP-enabled phone -- Nokia 7110? Or the aluminum/titanium clad 8850, 8890? Nice read, but simply not definitive. sorry.

Nokia 808 PureView? That WILL be memorable for years to come. and Nokia 3310. That phone which can break diamonds.

Think it should be expanded to 15 or 20 Nokias... N8, 3310, 1100, 8110, N-Series, some of the non-Symbian smartphones

I wonder why N8 is not on the list. N8 is a transformer in every way. It is the best camera phone to this day; it started all the buzz about great cameras on phones; it is the first Symbian^3 device; it has a unique design; and overall it is the best "all-in-one" phone that you can find on the market to date, as it packs HDMI, FM-transmitter, xenon-flash, and USB-on-the-go on top of all the other specs that may be common in other phones.

I think the most memorable is NOKIA N95 ;)

Haha, can't believe the 3310 and the N-gage didn't make it to the list. Who can forget those 2?

Everyone. The N-Gage was a piece of crap. You had to pull the battery to change games?! DAFUQ?!

Exactly why it's unforgettable, it had so much potential to breach the gap between game consoles and phones and nokia just blew it

6800 was my second phone. Still own it, and sometimes take it out to play Bounce. Also have an orange 5310, it's my second backup phone after my 6133. My 5230 Nuron was my backup but I gave it to my mom to replace her broken flip phone. All the Nokias I've ever bought for myself still work. Can't say the same for my friends' Samsungs, Apples, blackberries, Sony Ericssons, or Motorolas

Indeed... the first ever Symbian smartphone to feature Nokia's Series 60 UI!

I don't think N9 deserve to be on this list.. I agree to REYNER about the 8210. I think some models like 7280, 3250, 8800 in all kind of materials. What the heck, let's throw in the N8 with the class leading camera last year...Lumia 710 being the first Windows mobile? I wish n82 had the hype and be one of the choice up here. I owned it twice and the camera with the flash is still amazing. Definiteily better than iPhone 4. Call me crazy that I think its very comparable to iPhone 4s. You guys should put up a same article for RIM... oh wait they all look the same @@

Nokia 6610 Nokia 3600 & Nokia N95 8 GB The first three phones I owned... 2 of them are on the list :-D

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.

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
