From the first ever mobile telephone made in 1956, to the present day.

 

1956 - SRA/Ericsson MTA (Mobile Telephone System A)

This bad boy weighed 88 pounds, making it ironically immobile.

1983 - Motorola DynaTAC 8000X

The first truly mobile phone. It retailed for $3,995 in 1983, which translates roughly to over $8,700!

1984 - Nokia Mobira Talkman

The purpose of the big box? Longer battery life.

1989 - Motorola MicroTAC

The smaller version of the DynaTAC, of course.

1992 - Motorola International 3200

The first digital hand-sized mobile telephone. For Hulk hands.

1994 - Motorola 2900 Bag Phone

I remember thinking that people with these in their cars were RICH.

1996 - Motorola StarTAC

Finally, a reasonably-sized TAC whatever phone.

1996 - Nokia 8110

Also known as the banana phone.

And it was Neo's phone.

1996 - Nokia 9000 Communicator

The very first smart phone series

1998 - Nokia 5110

EVERYONE had these.

And we all played this. At least once.

1999 - Nokia 8210

2002 - RIM Blackberry 5810

QWERTY, baby!

2002 - Sanyo SCP-5300

The first cell phone in America with a camera. Thank you, Japan.

2002 - T-Mobile Sidekick

Those stupid sliding screens broke so easily.

2004 - Motorola Razr V3

Man did we love how thin these were.

2007 - Apple iPhone (first generation)

Come on. It's 2013. I'm ready for Will Ferrell's tiny cell phone!

    My Nokia 3310 is in a drawer. I plan to duckt-tape it to a wooden stick and use it as a stone age axe to cut down some trees.
