In 1984, Nokia acquired television maker Salora, followed by Swedish electronics and computer maker Luxor AB in 1985, and French television maker Oceanic in 1987.
This made Nokia the third-largest television manufacturer of Europe (behind Philips and Thomson).
Ericsson Information Systems made Alfaskop terminals, typewriters, minicomputers and Ericsson IBM compatible PCs.
The merge with Nokia's existing Information Systems division - which already had a line of personal computers called Mikro Mikko since 1981 - resulted in the name Nokia Data.
Mechelin expanded into electricity generation by 1902 which Idestam had opposed.
In 1904 Suomen Gummitehdas (Finnish Rubber Works), a rubber business founded by Eduard Polón, established a factory near the town of Nokia and used its name.
In 1871, Idestam, together with friend Leo Mechelin, formed a shared company from it and called it Nokia Ab (in Swedish, Nokia Company being the English equivalent), after the site of the second pulp mill.
Nokia also co-operated on scientific technology with the Soviet Union. Nokia imported many US-made components and used them for the Soviets, and according to U. Deputy Minister of Defence, Richard Perle, Nokia had a secret co-operation with The Pentagon that allowed the U. to keep track in technologic developments in the Soviet Union through trading with Nokia.
The company also entered virtual reality and digital health (the latter by purchasing Withings), Nokia's history dates back to 1865, when Finnish-Swede mining engineer Fredrik Idestam established a pulp mill near the town of Tampere, Finland (then in the Russian Empire).
A second pulp mill was opened in 1868 near the neighboring town of Nokia, offering better hydropower resources.
Nokia also acquired Mobira, a mobile telephony company, which was the foundation of its future mobile phones business.
In 1981, Mobira launched the Nordic Mobile Telephone (NMT) service, the world's first international cellular network and the first to allow international roaming.
However this was a demonstration of Finland trading with both sides, as it was neutral during the Cold War.
