I hate to repeat myself, and as a blogger, I made myself look bad, but you still have to see this animated historical video, which brings to life the history of Nokia from its beginnings in 1865. Watch the animated Nokia phones in this video, the whole story from the beginning to the present day.

Since the Nokia name will no longer appear on the phones, I see an even greater need to share the video with you in this 1.24 minute and in a few sentences describe the beginnings, who, where and when founded this ambitious company employing tens of thousands of people worldwide telecommunications company.

The history of Nokia began in 1865, when mining engineer Frederik Idestam established a pulp processing plant along the Tammerkoski stream near the city of Tampere in southwestern Finland, and began producing paper.[9] In 1868, Idestam built a second mill fifteen kilometers west of Tampere near the town of Nokia, where the Nokianvirta River provided better water power.

The three companies, which had been in the same hands since 1922, merged into a new industrial conglomerate called Nokia Corporation in 1967, laying the foundation for Nokia's future as a multinational company.

The new company was involved in several industries, producing, for example, paper products, car and bicycle tires, footwear (including rubber boots), communication cables, television sets and other household appliances, personal computers, electricity generation equipment, robots, capacitors, military communication and other equipment (such as the SANLA M/90 or M61 gas mask for the Finnish army), plastics, aluminum and chemicals.

Finally, in the 1990s, the company decided to leave consumer electronics behind and focus on the fastest growing segments of telecommunications. In 1988, Nokia Gumik, specializing in rubber production, was separated from the parent company, and two years later, Nokia Shoe was established, where rubber boots were produced.
