Nokia celebrates milestone with nostalgic exhibition
Built from bricks
To celebrate the 19th anniversary of the release of the Nokia's classic handset, the 1011 - the world's first commercially available GSM digital phone - the Finnish phone giant is holding an exhibition showcasing the various designs that made the company such a driving force during the mobile market's boom years.
The show, titled "People Made: Nokia products that changed the world", features designs from the early 'bricks' right the way up to the company's latest handset, the Nokia Lumia 800, the one it hopes will bring back the glory days.
The exhibition also looks at how the company's products have shaped folk's lives.
So, if you fancy a blast from the past, put your nan on hold and set your GPS to find the Design Museum, London, SE1. The exhibition runs on the first floor until Wednesday, 2 November. ®
Ive kept my Nokia 9000 as a reminder of how good they used to be,simple to use good volume both as a hands free and normal phone only let down by the battery life of less than a day.Even now Ive not found a phone as user friendly or good at what its supposed to do,make and receive phone calls.

The Nokia Museum
Probably the only viable strategy open to Nokia now.
Banged to rights - Caleb can't count.
According to the story you linked to, the 1011 was released in November 1992. That would make it 19 years old.
