The Nokia 1100 (and a closely-related variant, the Nokia 1101) is a durable and very simple GSM mobile phone produced by Nokia with a 96 x 65 monochrome screen. It is targeted towards developing countries and users who do not require advanced features beyond making calls and SMS text messages, alarm clock, reminders, etc.
The 1100 is similar to the now discontinued 5110/3210/3310 models that were among the most popular cell phones in the world a few years ago before handsets developed several new features such as cameras, polyphonic ringtones and colour screens.
Over 200 million Nokia 1100 cellphones have been sold since its launch in late 2003, making it the world's best selling phone handset, as well as the best selling consumer electronics device in the world, beating Sony's Playstation 2 (125 million), Apple Inc.'s iPod (170 million), Motorola's RAZR (100 million), and LG's Chocolate (10 million).
Nokia's one billionth phone sold was a Nokia 1100 purchased in Nigeria.
One of its most notable features is the ability to compose ringtones.
