The model number of a cell phone

What does the model number of a cell phone stand for? Does it have a special significance? eg: nokia 3310 or sony k300i?

It is just the model number assigned to it by the manufacturer, it has no purpose other than being the name of the phone for stock identification.

My Sony Ericsson comes in two colours: white and black. There are two models: 290a and 290b.

Nokia have a system splitting each millennium of phone into a classification. Off the top of my head, 3000 series are budget personal phones, 5000 series are outdoorsy durable phones, 6000 are business phones. Something like that anyway, look on their website.
 
so you guys sure the numbers do not have any technical meaning?
