Yesterday I had a discussion with a friend of mine were we talked about the impressive evolution the mobile industry have faced the last 10-15 years. He then asked me if I could remember my first mobile phone and could tell him that I got a Nokia 5110 back in 1998. I think I had this phone for like three years and it was impossible to break it. Once I left the phone on the roof of my car with the result that my phone got airbourne in about 80 km/h. I stopped the car and tried to find my phone but I only found the front cover (separated from the phone) lying on the road. Then a friend tried to call me and we could hear the phone ringing from a field further down the road. It was just to put the front cover back on and the phone worked perfectly well and only had a scratch on the battery. Try doing that with an iPhone!
This made me think of all the phones I have had since 1998 and I thought it would be fun to try to remember all of them. Below you will see a list with all the phones that I have had (at least the phones that I can remember)
- Nokia 5110
- Nokia 6230
- Nokia 6600
- Sony Ericsson K700i
- Nokia N75
- Sony Ericsson W950i
- Sony Ericsson W880i
- Sony Ericsson W960i
- HTC Touch Pro
- Samsung Omnia 2
