HOW THE MOBILE PHONE HAS CHANGED...

Mobile Phones Over Time.jpg

Although it's been quite some time, it still seems like it wasn't too long ago that I was showing my friends all the cool stuff I could do on my latest Nokia and seeing constant adds on how to download the latest polyphonic ringtones - Since that time though, boy have we come a long way.

As you would now know unless you live under a rock, Apple has just revealed their newest additions to the iPhone range with the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, but before all that there was a lot we went through to get to where we are now. It also seems like we've found the perfect formula now too, as the basic design of a smartphone hasn't changed since the launch of the original iPhone back in 2007... It's still that same rectangle shaped pocket computer that we've come to know and love, just with features that are rapidly advancing.

But since the launch of the original mobile phones back in the 80's, it might shock you just to see how much progression we've gone through - From bricks to smaller bricks, flips & sliders, keyboards to touch screens, it's been a crazy ride!
