Nokia GSM Phones
Of all the mobile phone manufacturers in the world, Nokia reigns supreme as the world's largest maker of cell phones. This communications company is based in Finland just outside the capital of Helsinki, and has its roots in a company that was founded way back in 1865. Not only is Nokia a world leader in mobile technology, it is - as you might expect - the largest company in the entire country of Finland. It is such a household name in Finland that far more people have only mobile phones (Nokia, of course) and do not even bother with land lines.
As you can imagine, a company this dedicated to - and this good at - mobile phones has a huge number of phones to choose from. The array of choices can be dizzying, but the main thing to keep in mind when you are thinking about what kind of cell phone is going to travel best with you is how adaptable your phone is to the country you are visiting. More specifically, you want to make sure that you are looking at Nokia GSM phones that are unlocked - this will allow you to insert a local SIM card into your phone without having to get it unlocked in the first place.
In addition to being ready to travel from the get-go, Nokia GSM phones have the added benefit of allowing you to swap out SIM cards for each country you visit if you want to. This will give you a different phone number in every country, which could be inconvenient if you are hoping to make keeping in touch easy on the folks back home, but this will let you take advantage of the lowest local calling rates rather than paying high roaming charges.
Even among the number of Nokia GSM phones that are available, you will also find different features depending on the phones you are looking at. Which phones are best suited to you will depend partly on where you are traveling, but also on which ones have features that will be useful to you. Sure, having a few games on your phone might be fun, but if it will cost too much extra and you will not use it much it may not be worth it. Having your phone double as a web browser or a music player, however, may make sense if you can leave one extra gadget at home.
