Nokia mobile telephone
The mobile phone in the corvette.

Nokia was a telecommunications company located on Earth, providing telephone services across the planet, including mobile communications.

In an alternate reality in 2241, James Kirk's stepfather's Corvette was equipped with a Nokia mobile telephone. His stepfather used this to contact Kirk when he took the car out for a joyride. (Star Trek)

Background

This was one of the few instances of product placement being used in a Star Trek production.

Screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman suggested in a question-and-answer session with fans that the company Nokia might have been nationalized by the 23rd century. [1]

The real-life Nokia was consulted by Star Trek property master Russell Bobbitt for the redesign of the TOS communicator. In addition, Nokia, in conjunction with Verizon Wireless, created a marketing tie-in for Star Trek, which included the launch of a website at JoinStarfleetAcademy.com.
