Evolution of Phones


Yesterday, I received my first call through my computer. Cool eh? I know, I know – the Beta of OSX Yosemite has been around for months now – but I was someone who waited to get the official release. And it was worth the wait. Maybe I’ll do another blog about the fun features about this operating system, but for now it got me thinking of the evolution of the Phone in just my lifetime. Which then got me all sentimental about the phones I have enjoyed growing up. And I thought I’d share it here…


The first batch (pictured above), was the journey of screen and ringtones. My first ever mobile, with only two lines of digital readout was my pride and joy. I loved it. Until the Nokia 3210 came out. That had snake (classic phone game that I’ve probably spent more time on than any other game…)!! The screen, still two-tone had a massive display in comparison. Through the years, the screens grew, the colours increased and the ringtones went from beeps to polyphonic to full-on audio recordings. Then came the age of the camera phone, just before the dawn of the smartphone.


The final few phones (indicated above) included the last button phone by Sony Ericcson before I switched to touchscreen. Since then the technology in phones have only ever increased in quality and capacity. Right up to yesterday, where I took my first phone call through my synced computer. Who knows where we go from here, but I love technology. Thanks Erricson, Nokia, Sony and Apple. This journey continues to be amazing…
