Nokia 3310 – 2000

Moreover, some would say that it was created for messaging addicts as it had a feature that let the messages to be longer than usual – even 459 characters per each message and allowed to display the chats in an easy form. Also it was one of the most successful phones during the history as the company has sold more than one million units. Can you imagine that?

Doesn’t it look funny? Well even though the design doesn’t seem to be very attractive, this was not created just to be beautiful. The main purpose of Nokia 6800 was to be a messaging device. At this point I need to admit that it has played its major role. The main feature that is outstanding is that you could use an owerty keyboard with this phone or use it as a usual device – depends on your wish.

Believe me or not, this phone is actually considered to be a smartphone even though it doesn’t actually look like the one from nowadays. The evolutionary thing here is that it has proved that phones can finally be coalescing and was the most overtly converged device. Since it is the ‘father’ of such phones like Xperia or Note 3s, it has proved its multi-functionality that lets to consider it as roots of smartphones.

This phone has brought up the best possibilities ever.
