Mobile turns 40 today (at least the call does). An infographic.

Today is the 40th anniversary of the first mobile phone call ever placed.

So I thought it apropos to offer you this infographic, which highlights the milestones of smartphones and cellular communication.

It was created by Waypharer, and does a fairly good job walking you through the history of mobile.

I think it’s a bit long.

But interesting nonetheless.

I wanted to embed the joint right in here.

But the bloody embed code didn’t work (and I wasn’t willing to troubleshoot to figure out why).

So I chopped it up into pieces.

And since it is so friggin’ long, today I will spare you my blathering.

Cause if you don’t know that I’m a techno-head by now, you’re a lost cause and my precious words are wasted on you.

So without further ado..

Smartphone, past, present and the future

Symbian to OS

Smartphone manufacturers

Smartphones in the future
