12 phones that changed the world
Today’s fancy phones: They all came from somewhere
Every mobile phone we use today, from basic handsets to the most advanced computer-in-your-pocket, wasn’t created in a vacuum. Instead, they were built using the parts of many groundbreaking phones that came before them. Even if they don’t look like much now, those pioneer devices set the stage for all the mobile development to come.
What follows are 12 handsets that changed the planet forever, either by introducing a new feature we now take for granted, or by making phones accessible to more people. By no means is this meant to be a completely comprehensive list, but each of the phones listed here was a “first” in a very important way. So, next time you’re checking Facebook on a phone, or even (gasp) making a call, remember the phones that made it possible.
