We all have a fundamental need to connect with the people and things that matter to us. People want to reach out to each other: talk, share, laugh, cry, gossip, anything. Information is shared, greetings are exchanged, messages of love are sent – but regardless of the content, connecting with other people is one of the key things that make us what we are.
Nokia aims at making all this to happen, by making relevant and easy-to-use devices and offering services that help people connect. Different people have different communication needs, and Nokia is working to meet all of those specific needs.
That’s why Nokia invented text messaging in 1993 and led the development of the first picture messaging service. They were involved in the first successful MMS, sent in Finland in 2002. In the recent years, they’ve also come up with numerous state-of-the-art ideas, such as the Comes With Music service, a truly innovative approach to legal music downloading. In fact, they’ve made countless innovations since the birth of mobile – one of the most important being the world’s first GSM phone.
Nokia’s history goes way back. They started almost 150 years ago at a paper mill in Finland (that’s right, we’re not Japanese). In between that time and the present day, they’ve been successful in such areas as rubber manufacturing, electricity generation, cables, consumer electronics, footwear, and countless others – all this through innovation and awareness of the constantly evolving needs of their consumers.
Today, they’re working toward a time when everyone on the planet is connected. they’re continually exploring new ways to make this happen, turning innovative ideas – be they devices, services, social networks or something completely new – into useful tools to help people connect.
Nokia has always been an up to date company; not only following the new innovations but in a fact creating them; Nokia really cares about communication in between people all around the world, and whatever makes this communication better Nokia is willing to do; and what a better way for connecting people than sponsoring the Social Media week.
