10 Things you don't know about NOKIA

1) The ringtone "Nokia tune" is actually
based on a 19th century guitar work named "Gran Vals" by Spanish
musician Francisco Tárrega. The Nokia Tune was originally named "Grande
Valse" on Nokia phones but was changed to "Nokia Tune" around 1998 when
it became so well known that people referred to it as the "Nokia Tune."


2) The world's first commercial GSM call
was made in 1991 in Helsinki over a Nokia-supplied network, by Prime
Minister of Finland Harri Holkeri, using a Nokia phone.


3) Nokia is currently the world's largest
digital camera manufacturer, as the sales of its camera-equipped mobile
phones have exceeded those of any conventional camera manufacturer.


4) The "Special" tone available to users
of Nokia phones when receiving SMS (text messages) is actually Morse
code for "SMS". Similarly, the "Ascending" SMS tone is Morse code for
"Connecting People," Nokia's slogan. The "Standard" SMS tone is Morse
code for "M" (Message).


5) The Nokia corporate font (typeface) is
the AgfaMonotype Nokia Sans font, originally designed by Eric
Spiekermann. Its mobile phone User's Guides Nokia mostly used the Agfa
Rotis Sans font.


6) In Asia, the digit 4 never appears in
any Nokia handset model number, because 4 is considered unlucky in many
parts of Southeast/East Asia.


7) Nokia was listed as the 20th most
admirable company worldwide in Fortune's list of 2006 (1st in network
communications, 4th non-US company).


8. Unlike other modern day handsets,
Nokia phones do not automatically start the call timer when the call is
connected, but start it when the call is initiated. (Except for Series
60 based handsets like the Nokia 6600)


9) Nokia is sometimes called aikon (Nokia
backwards) by non-Nokia mobile phone users and by mobile software
developers, because "aikon" is used in various SDK software packages,
including Nokia's own Symbian S60 SDK.


10) The name of the town of Nokia
originated from the river which flowed through the town. The river
itself, Nokianvirta, was named after the old Finnish word originally
meaning sable, later pine marten. A species of this small, black-furred
predatory animal was once found in the region, but it is now extinct.
