The World’s Best-Selling Handset
The Nokia 1100 (with variants, the Nokia 1101 and the Nokia 1108) is a basic GSM mobile phone produced by Nokia. 250 million 1100s have been sold since its launch in late 2003. This is the world’s best selling phone handset and the best selling consumer electronics device in the world at the time. Nokia even claimed that the Nokia 1100 was “the world’s most popular phone.”
This phone was a part of their strategy to offer low-cost (simple GSM mobile phone) mobile handsets. Advantages of this model include features like the long-lasting battery and a durable design.
