In the early 2000s, Nokia ruled supremely in the mobile phone market and will occupy this position as the world’s leading manufacturer until 2011. During this period, Apple unveiled an exciting iPhone in 2007, and an operating system called Android will begin animating “smartphones”.

Since then, the brand has changed hands, without reviving its former glory. She found a show anyway stability with the Finnish company HMD Global. Founded by former Nokia executives, it has put Nokia back on the smartphone card … and has phones. The company continues to surf its image and regularly revives models that have shaped its history.
