Nokia announced on 18 May 2016 that it is coming back to smartphones, pairing up with Android, to bring back innovation and excitement. We thought that Nokia might have bid farewell to phones forever, but the future once again looks bright.

Nokia started in a pulp mill in southwestern Finland on 12 May 1865. And while it has changed considerably in the intervening years, including selling its Lumia devices business to Microsoft, the company still holds a dear place in our hearts.

That's mainly because of the incredible mobile phones it released over a 30 year period (rather than its early milling expertise, to be honest).

The last three decades saw the release of a many (and often unusual) Nokia suitcase phones, mobile phones, messaging phones, gaming phones, music phones, slider phones, fashion phones, cameraphones, and smartphones. And we love them all. Well, almost...

From the Cityman (made famous in 1987 by the President of the Soviet Union) to the Nokia Lumia 1020 (a Windows Phone 8 cameraphone with a massive 41-megapixel image sensor), there has been a wide array of Nokia phones released.

And like putting on an old record and being transported back in time, rummaging through old images of Nokia phones is quite an experience.

You might remember playing Snake on the Nokia 5110, for instance, or maybe you were one of the crazy - and rich - few who lugged around a Mobira Talkman in the mid-1980s. No matter which phone you owned, if you want to relive the good 'ol days, check out the gallery below.

We've rounded up 30 of the best and, frankly, worst and weirdest Nokia phones from over the last 30 years, as we look forward to the Android Nokia phones of the future.
