    About: Similar to 5110 but runs on GSM 1800. The 5110, also known as Nokia 5146 on One2One (now T-Mobile), or the nk402 on Orange in the UK, was intended for the consumer market, succeeding Nokia 1610 and the analogue Nokia 232. Its design is based on the same platform as Nokia 6110 for the business market. It features a similar, simpler, revamped user interface called Series 20,[2] but lacked the infrared data interface. It can, however, be interfaced with a computer via a cellular data card and the appropriate cable, enabling it to function like a modem to connect to remote computer systems through the Public switched telephone network (PSTN).
    Nokia 5110 is rugged, has excellent battery life, and features an 84?48-pixel monochrome LCD with four LED backlights, operated by the Philips PCD8544 display controller.
    It is the first Nokia phone to come with replaceable faceplates, which Nokia branded “Xpress-on” covers; a concept Nokia incorporated into several other consumer-oriented cellphones aimed at the young adult market for years to come, allowing users to customize their device. “Xpress-on” was trademarked in the U.S. on 25 February 1998.
    Nokia 5110 is also one of the first mobile phones to feature the game Snake. It became one of the most popular phones of its era.
    Nokia 5110 was discontinued by the year 2000, having been fully replaced by the smaller Nokia 3210.Similar to 5110 but running in GSM 1800 only

    About: The Nokia 6210 is a mobile phone made by Nokia. It was introduced at the CeBIT fair in Hanover in February 2000 succeeding Nokia 6110. In addition to calling and SMS messaging, the phone has many other features, such as an alarm clock, a HSCSD modem, a WAP web client, 3 games (Snake 2, Pairs II and Opposite), a calculator, a ‘to-do’ list application, a calendar, infrared connectivity, a voice recorder and a stopwatch. In keeping with Nokia’s practice of selling phones that the user can customize the physical appearance of, the 6210 is minimally customizable. The plastic detail below the keypad, which Nokia called the ‘Personal Badge’ is removable. For a time, Nokia would send replacements, screen-printed with text of the customer’s choosing. These were free for a promotional period.
    The 6210 could have bluetooth functionality added to it, with the use of the Nokia Connectivity Pack, which included a replacement battery which incorporated a Bluetooth adaptor and antenna (interfacing with the phone via normally unused electrical contacts in the battery compartment), and a connectivity card with a PCMCIA adaptor to bring bluetooth to a portable computer (at the time, December 2000, bluetooth was not widespread). The connectivity batteries were available separately. A software upgrade was needed for existing 6210 owners. For this reason, an upgraded 6210 was the earliest cellular phone with bluetooth connectivity. The upgrade pack was ready several months before the launch of the first cellphone with bluetooth built-in, however, it was not released to market until sometime after the first integrated-bluetooth phone had been launched. It can certainly be considered to be the first phone with a bluetooth option.
