Nokia Mobira Cityman 900

By | Sep 12, 2013

Year 1987, Launch Price: Rs 4,00,000 (approx.)

Back in the 80s, when the music was awesome and phones used to be as heavy as 5 kilogram, Nokia introduced Mobira Cityman 900. Weighing under 800 grams (outrageous by today’s standards), it was one of the lightest mobile phones available in 1987. The Cityman 900 and Nokia grabbed the media attention across the globe when Mikhail Gorbachev, President of the Soviet Union, made a call from Helsinki to Moscow. Little wonder that the handset was simply known as “Gorba” thereafter.

Key Features:
Monochrome screen that could display 8 numbers.
1000-mAh battery (talk time of 50 minutes).
Operated on the now-defunct NMT (Nordic Mobile Telephone) network.
