The World’s Best-Known Ringtone Celebrates 20th Birthday [Video]

You may not be using a Nokia device but I bet you have heard their most iconic ringtone before. The Nokia tune was created back in 1994 and has been evolving since. From monotonic to polyphonic and then MP3, the tone is still hot in the recent devices like the Lumia and Asha phones.

In 1994, the Nokia ringtone made its debut on the Nokia 2110. From that moment on, the tune would be found on every single Nokia device, and can still be found on Nokia phones today, from Nokia Asha to Nokia Lumia smartphones.

Naturally, there have been many different versions of the Nokia ringtone as the technology has advanced over the years, but the melody always remains the same.

Happy 20th Birthday, Nokia Ringtone!
