But it was only when they expanded their operations into mobile phones that Nokia really took off and became one of the most valuable companies in the world. For a period of time, Nokia’s annual budget was larger than the government of Finland’s national budget – something that had never been seen before.

But how did such an empire come crashing down? It appears that global domination cost the company its pioneering spirit, with quantity gradually replacing quality.
