Mobile phone evolution: Story of shapes and sizes

Source: http://www.gsmarena.com/mobile_phone_evolution-review-493.php

Introduction

This week we step away from our usual line of work to do some time travel. We’re looking back at the ten years that we’ve been following the mobile phone industry. It doesn’t start nor end with us, but we just couldn’t resist the temptation to pause and slowly rewind the evolution of mobile phones.

It’s a live show and tomorrow we’ll all be back to covering the whole thing as it unfolds. But today it’s the flashback episode, where we find out how it went from Motorola StarTac through Moto RAZR to the iPhone and a bunch of phones with the HD moniker.

People tend to romanticize the past but mobile phones seem to have no respect for their ancestors. Technology has advanced at breakneck speed and our humble database is nothing short of a time machine. Hop on for a journey in the history of mobile phones. And by the way, it’s history you – our readers – wrote.

We dug deep inside our server logs ten years back. We traced certain trends to present day and we have some interesting charts to show you. It’s all there: how form factor preferences have mutated through the years and how touchscreen has changed the game today.
