Back in the day, Nokia was a god among men when it came to phones. Their simple devices offered users cheaper and accessible cellular devices for much of the 2000s, whether it was the Nokia 505 or the 1110. They were durable, they were portable and they were usable. But every model was a keyboard-based device.
It wasn’t until 2004 that Nokia broke away from their traditional models with the 7710. The device came out in 2004 and had a TFT touchscreen. The screen aspect ratio was 2:1, but relied primarily on physical buttons for things like answering calls, navigating and accessing menus if the user preferred. It came with 90MB of memory built-in as well as a 128MB card. In select countries, it was even sold as a precursor to Google Maps by way of a satellite receiver.
