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.

Nokia products that changed the world

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. ®
