The black handset measured 195 x 60 x 45 mm and featured a monochrome LCD and an extendable antenna. The memory could hold 99 phone numbers. It did not yet employ Nokia's characteristic ringtone: that was only introduced in 1994. The phone operated in the 900 MHz band and could still function on GSM 900 networks. At that time the device cost about 2500 DM[2] (About 918 Euros today).

The phone was able to send and receive SMS messages, even if Nokia says that its model 2110 phone was the first SMS-enabled GSM phone.[citation needed]

Nokia 1011 continued production until 1994, when Nokia 2010 and Nokia 2110 were introduced as successors.
