11 classic Nokia phones that changed the world (and 8 crazy ones that didn't)

Nokia 7110 (1999)

The firm’s first Series 40 phone, the 7110 offered a WAP browser: the perfect solution for anyone who wants to use Internet on the go and has a spare two hours to wait for a near-unreadable page to load onto the 95 x 95 pixel monochrome screen (we kid, we kid – the screen was actually huge and reasonably hi-res by 1999's standards). Billed as Nokia's first "media phone", it gave users hitherto unavailable mobile access to email and web services like news and ticket booking.

It also offered a clickable wheel to make scrolling easier, and the spring-loaded keypad cover/mouthpiece is something of a design masterstroke.
