The Top 5 Phones that brought Nokia to the Limelight

  It's now official that Microsoft will be buying Nokia for £3.2 billion and this collaboration seems possible because of the attention that the Nokia + Microsoft combination has drawn by their breathtaking Lumia Windows Phone. Hopefully, the Nokia and Microsoft collaboration will bring a strong foothold in the fight against Google and Apple in the Smartphones Marketplace. But what exactly brought Nokia to the limelight that could make Microsoft ever think of paying a huge sum of  £3.2 billion for the Finnish company ?   Nokia's star may have waned few years ago but the release of their batches of Lumia Phones brought them to the top again - so we've looked back and picked the phones both past and present which makes Nokia so popular, irresistible and also makes their phones worth buying.

1. Nokia 3310

Sometimes around year 2000 (Y2K) while George Bush and Gore were battling for the keys to the White House. Nokia released the Nokia 3310, which till today is still known for its strength and also the Snake II game, being the most popular game of the age. This phone also allowed us to send text messages above the 160-character limit back then. In short, Nokia 3310 is powerful, versatile, and its a pleasure to have one back then.

2. Nokia 1110

Nokia 1110 remains Nokia's best-selling phone of all time. In fact, it's the best-selling handset in history (unless you want to join all the editions of the iPhone together), so keep this in mind incase you are going for a mobile technology quiz. Like most of the Nokia Phones, Nokia 1110 was user-friendly and simple to operate, and it helped Nokia expand worldwide into developing countries that they previously haven't touched. This phone may not be so powerful but it remains one of Nokia's most important phones in terms of spreading the company's influence and getting its name recognised across the globe.

3. Nokia N95

Nokia N95 was the most feature-packed phone in existence before the iPhone came up, offering features like GPS, Online mapping, MP3 player, Wi-Fi, 3G support and a 5 megapixel camera that was ahead of its time (recording both images and video). Even the BlackBerry Torch 2 so many BlackBerry freaks are being too proud of today doesn't have much more. Featuring a big, bright, colourful screen and a slide-out design – Nokia N95 was everything that the first iPhone wasn't and it caused a lot of users to fly all over the globe to get this amazing phone.
