Nokia Corporation is the industry of telecommunications equipment Internet and computer software and it is now headquartered in Espoo, Finland. Nokia was established by Fredrik Idestan and Leo Mechelin. Knut Fredrik Idestam was used to be a Finnish mining engineer and its businessman and lived from October 28, 1838 to April 8, 1916. Another founder, named Leopold Henrik Stanislaus Mechelin was a also Finnish, and was a professor, statesman, senator and liberal reformer, who lived from November 24, 1839 to January 26, 1914.
The history of Nokia has started in 1865. Mining engineer Knut Fredrik Idestam sets up a groundwood pulp mill at the Tammerkoski Rapids, town of Tampere, where in south-western Finland. At that time, Russian Empire in southwestern Finland had started manufacture the riverside paper because of rich hydropower production, Fredrik Idestam built a second mill near the town of Nokia, where located fifteen kilometers west of Tampere by the Nokianvirta river in 1868. And the global telecommunications leader connected over 1.3 billion people. Eduard Polon established Finnish Rubber Works and some rubber products. This business would be Nokia’s rubber business later. Because Finnish Rubber built its factories near the town of Nokia, so they started to using Nokia as its brand name.
In 1912, Arvid Wickstrom established Finnish Cable Works began operations. The three companies were merged into one, and it formed the Nokia Corporation as we know much. At the beginning of the 1980s, the mobile phone industry begins to expand so quickly and the position of Nokia gets more powerful for telecommunications and consumer electronics markets. And in 1982, Nokia introduced its first car phone to the world. Then Nokia’s mobile phones got a huge publicity boost in 1987, and that was when Mikhali Gorbachev, who used to be a Soviet leader, was pictured with Mobira Cityman and it became known as the “Gorba”.
The beginning of the 1990s, Nokia expanded the business of telecommunications by divesting of the information technology and basic industry operations. Nokia increased its sales to North America at first, and then it spread to the South America and Asia. In 1998, Nokia had focused on GSM technologies , therefore, the company became one of the biggest mobile phone manufacturer in the world. Nowadays, Nokia became one of the top-seller of mobile phone in the world. In 2004 was the first year that Nokia released the touch screen phone, which called Nokia 7710.
In 2009, Nokia announced a high-end Windows-based netbook which named Nokia Booklet 3G, and it also had an advantage of Symbian because it was the main smartphone OS of Nokia until 2011. In the same year, Nokia announced a new strategic alliance with Microsoft to replace Symbian and MeeGo with Microsoft of operating system, which is Windows Phone. Nokia practice many other thing to develop till now, it still keep changing with consumer’s needs.
