Correct answer: Nokia 1100

The phone was announced on 27 August 2003, and production ceased in September 2009. Although there were more advanced models on the market, the Nokia 1100 was preferred due to its affordable price. At the time most users, especially in developing markets, wanted a device for calls and SMS. However, the Nokia 1100 came with some interesting features: it included a flashlight, was dustproof and had the games Snake II and Space Impact+ pre-installed.
