The Most Memorable Mobile Phones Ever
Our mobile phones are devices we attach ourselves to more than any other object, both emotionally and physically. They are a connection between ourselves and our loved ones and the one thing we carry around with us wherever we go. If we think back to the past we’ll find that some were particularly unforgettable. This is because to us, they had all of the required qualities necessary for them to leave a powerful imprint on our lives; such as a beautiful design, impressive technological features and a little something extra just to push it ahead of all the others. Here are the most memorable mobile phones ever.
While, any of the iPhone’s generations can be considered legendary, the first and original will always be the most memorable. This was the phone that changed the world and subsequently mobile phone technology. It was the father of the smartphones, the pioneer of the app.
Consumers were given a device on which one could watch and record videos of a high quality and do so efficiently, without the constant jittering and pausing on other phones.
But back to the point of the app: this changed mobiles forever. It enabled mobile phones to have near endless possibilities on what they’re capabilities were.
The fact it was developed by Apple meant that its design was never going to be anything but historical.
The Nokia 3210
This mobile phone was a classic, in every sense of the word. The 3210 was most popular model in the midst of Nokia’s dominance through which they captured the masses with changeable covers, trendy designs and colours, easy texting and the ever addictive game, Snake.
Cheaper than today’s excessive mobile phone offers, this was of a generation of the first phones to be a hit amongst kids. That they could also be found inside the pockets of adults further increases their stock.
Any of the BlackBerry Curves
While its demise occurred almost as fast as its rise, the BlackBerry truly changed the concept of mobile phone interaction through the implementation of instant messaging. BlackBerry Messenger created a social network exclusive to ‘BBM’ users.
The buttons were fixated in the order of keyboard letters to make things easier for typing, which just made usesr even more hooked to socially interacting via the phone.
The BlackBerry Curves were the best of the bunch, with a strong but subtly charming appeal.
For this reason alone, any of them can be distinguished from the other BlackBerry generations as truly memorable.
