    The Nokia 6110 came out in 1997. It was aimed at the business market, but the monochrome-screen phone came preloaded with Snake. And we all know what that meant.

    The Nokia 5110 was the consumer version of the 6110. The biggest difference? You could get different colored face plates for the phone, swap them out and trade them with friends. If you had a cool colored 5110 and a high Snake score you were as cool as they came in 1997.

    But in 1998 if you had the Nokia 8810 or the "Zippo" you were the coolest of the cool. You were also pretty wealthy -- the phone cost more than the other plastic models at the time. It had an internal antenna and it was clad in silver.

    A year later in 1999, Nokia came out with the 8210 in a selection of colors. The phone was the smallest and lightest phone at the time.

    That same year Nokia decided to do something interesting with the design of the Nokia 3650. But it wasn't just the circular number pad that made this handset standout -- it also was one of the first phones with a camera to be sold in the U.S.

    In 2006 Nokia started to make its N Series of smartphones, which were in a way a precursor to the iPhone. The N80 had 3G connectivity, ran the Symbian operating system and had a web browser and apps.

    Nokia also tried its hand at some QWERTY keyboard devices. The E71 had a very comfortable keyboard, a 2.36-inch screen and a 3.15 megapixel camera when it was released in 2006.

    And this bring us to more modern days. In 2011 Nokia announced it was going to begin using Microsoft's Windows Phone platform. The Lumia 900 was one of the first flagship smart phones in the Lumia line released in the U.S.
