Did you know what was the first Nokia phone ever?
The Mobira brand name emerged in 1979, after Nokia merged with an electronics company called Salora. Two years later, in 1981, Finland's first cell phone system was launched, and Mobira was hard at work building phones for the new network. This 1st-generation (1G) analog standard was known as NMT-450 and ran on the 450MHz VHF band.
As for the Mobira Senator, it was launched in 1982 and was marketed as a phone for in-car use. Sure, you could carry it around, although its weight of 9.8 kg (22 lb.) made that a challenging task. They didn't have lithium-ion batteries back then, you know. Today, the Mobira Senator is one of the rarest cell phones that have ever existed, which is not surprising given its age.
