Nokiamob celebrates its 10th anniversary! | nokimob
Well, that’s just unforgivable. I was so busy these days that I didn’t even have time for the celebratory post. To hell with this modern life and capitalism, it takes time from my passion :).
But hey, you know what they say, better late than never. Nokiamob turns 10 since April 8, so happy birthday dear blog. It all started in 2012, a year after the Burning memo, and shortly after I got my hands on the Nokia Lumia 800. I always wanted to play with the Nokia N9, but the Lumia 800 was all I could put your hand, and I liked the phone. The software not so much, although it was smoother than good old Symbian. Anyway, Nokiamob also owes its existence to my eldest son, since I had a few free days to finish the WordPress page and start writing the first posts before the newborn came home from the hospital .
For the first years we only published in Croatian, but after the complete collapse of the Nokia smartphone business, Stipe and I decided to start writing in English and Nokiamob.net was created. The crew has changed over the years but has remained the same for the most part. However, the activity of writers has changed over time since we all have day jobs and earn little or nothing from the blog, so all the articles you see here are fueled by pure passion and free time.
If you don’t know us yet, Nokiamob now consists of Stipan who is based here in Croatia and an Apple lover lately, Indranil from the country with the most Nokia followers, Abdulla who lives where all the wealthy YouTubers live , and JK, our connection to the Far East.
However, we are not the only blog contributors. All of this is maintained for the good of the Nokia community, which was created by the passionate employees of Nokia and the users of their products. Nokia may no longer be in the smartphone business, but the spirit of kindness and generosity created many years ago is still present today.
The blog has fluctuated over the years and in the pre-Covid era, it almost reached one million monthly visitors, which can be considered respectable. However, since Google is the trendsetter and Nokia no longer pushes most wanted phones, NokiaMob is followed monthly by around 300,000 to 350,000 people worldwide.
Although we live in difficult times and our daily tasks take most of our free time, we still try to keep this blog alive. The goal here is to bring news from Nokia and the ex-Nokia world closer to anyone who currently uses a Nokia product or cherishes the good old days. Nokia is now doing wonders with licensing deals, which might feel like the good old days. I can’t wait to see what else Nokia has prepared for us and if some current offerings will change with the help of the Finns.
I want to thank all of you for spending your valuable time coming and spending it on the Nokiamob pages, and all the blog contributors, Abdulla, JK, Indranil, Stipan, and everyone who will join us in future ventures .
