The original mobile phones were heavy, bulky and usually permanently installed in cars. But 1987 saw a breakthrough: Nokia launched the Mobira Cityman, the first handheld mobile phone for Nordic Mobile Telephony networks and a model that was to become a classic. Nokia’s mobile phones got a big publicity boost in 1987, when Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev was pictured using a Cityman to make a call from Helsinki to his communications minister in Moscow. This led to the phone’s affectionate nickname, the Gorba. The phone wasn’t cheap and it wasn’t pocket-sized: it weighed 800 grams and had a price tag of around $6,500.
