There are now nearly endless images of contemporary cell phones that you might find with a simple Google search, but what about older phones? This is where the new Mobile Museum comes in.
More than 2,100 premium cell phones dating back to 1984 are featured on this newly launched website. You can also read a comprehensive description of each device that includes important facts, as well as view other information such as their weights and code names.
The book has some additional features, including a list of other models you might want to consider buying. To help you browse the available phones, they are organized into different groups, such as the best-selling (such as the Motorola Razr V3), the unattractive (including the Nokia 7600), and the first, such as the Sony Ericsson W800, which was the first Walkman phone.
Founded by Ben Wood (who is also chief analyst at CCS Insight), the Museum of the Mobile Phone aims not only to recall old cellphones you might have owned, but also to inspire and educate a new generation of engineers and designers.
But this is not done. Several phones are absent from the collection, and the site is asking for donations for those who are missing. If you send in an old phone that isn’t listed on the site, it will be photographed and stored in a safe place, ensuring that it is never forgotten over time.
It is an important initiative to preserve the history of the industry.
Although some histories are incomplete and incomplete, cell phones are a recent invention and no previous model should be neglected, and the Mobile Phone Museum is an excellent way to memorialize them all.
While most cell phones are easily available online, in many situations, it will take a lot of searching, and the images may be of low quality. If not properly indexed, it can become increasingly difficult to locate these old phones over time.
However, with the Mobile Phone Museum, they will all be in one place, with extensive information and high-resolution images, and the phones themselves are kept so securely that at least one example of each phone will remain for a long time.
It is only a matter of time before the phones are discovered and collected, allowing comprehensive documentation of phone activity.
