Nokia 5110 is a GSM mobile phone that was introduced by Nokia in March 1998.[1]

The 5110, also known as the Nokia 5146 on One2One (now T-Mobile), or nk402 on Orange in the UK, was intended for the consumer market. Its design was based on the same platform as the Nokia 6110 for the business market. It features a similar simpler, revamped user interface, but lacked the infra-red data interface. It could, however, be interfaced with a computer via a cellular data card and the appropriate cable - enabling it to function like a modem for connection to remote computer systems, via the Public switched telephone network.

The Nokia 5110 was rugged, had excellent battery life, and featured an 84 by 48 pixel monochrome LCD with four LED back lights, operated by the Philips PCD8544 display controller. It was one of the first mobile telephones with a replaceable faceplate (which Nokia branded 'Xpress-on covers'), a concept they incorporated into several other consumer-oriented cellphones aimed at the young adult market, allowing users to customize their device. It was also one of the first mobile phones to feature the game Snake. It became one of the most popular phones of its era. The Nokia 5110 was discontinued in 2001, replaced by other smaller and lighter devices.


In the Asia Pacific region, Nokia launched a successor to the 5110, the 5110i. The 5110i had a longer talk time and standby time and had a more ergonomic, redesigned, silicone keypad.

While the Nokia 5110 operates only on 900MHz GSM networks, the 5130 operates on 1800MHz GSM networks instead, and was marketed by Orange in the UK as the nk402.

The North American variant of this handset is the Nokia 5190 which is a 1900 MHz only GSM handset. There was also a North American version of the 5110i, the 5125. The Nokia 5160/Nokia 5165 with TDMA/IS-136 service on 800 MHz and 1900 MHz and analog AMPS service at 800 MHz is the same handset form. The Nokia 5120/5125 is a TDMA/IS-136 handset that operates on 800 MHz and also on AMPS at 800 MHz.

The Nokia 5180i/Nokia 5185i are CDMA/AMPS handsets.
