Hagenuk MT-2000 in the Cetelco variant

Hagenuk MT-2000 was a mobile phone device launched in 1994.[1] The device was designed and manufactured by Hagenuk's development centre in Støvring, Denmark. The phone was, together with its predecessor Hagenuk MT-900 from 1992,[2] some of the first mobile phones in the industry using Soft keys. Finally, the MT-2000 was the first in industry to have a built-in antenna, instead of the traditional extension antennas. It was believed until recently that it was the first smartphone to have installed a video game but then it turned out that the first was the IBM Simon.

History of Hagenuk[edit]

Hagenuk was one of the first developers of digital mobile games in the industry, and the development center was Cetelco in Støvring, Denmark.[3] Cetelco had already a history in developing Analogue mobile phones. The phones were in the beginning sold in two variants, in both the name of Hagenuk and Cetelco.

Hagenuk had got in early into the GSM phone market. Their first GSM mobile, the MT-900, got it official type approval only 4 weeks after Nokia got type approval for their first GSM hand portable (the 1101) but Hagenuk beat Nokia by three years in getting a game of Tetris. It was believed until recently that it was the first smartphone to have installed a video game but then it turned out that the first was the IBM Simon.
