Look Back At The Most Popular Mobile Headsets From the Past History!

Before Smartphones, there were mobile phones…

It’s been just 10 years (almost), since the first iPhone came and was launched by Apple Inc. And the cell phones became endangered. Now, it is 2016 and they almost got extinct by now. May be in the next one or two years, we will see them only in papers and magazines. Some old gadgets of mobile headsets are still left with those who want to stay ‘traditional’-jokes apart! Yeah, smartphones have made life easy and comfortable, without any doubt. Yet, it’s unjust to forget the smartphone’s preceding origin-the qwerty-enabled, small, yet cute boxes which were, at one point, the unrivaled stars in terms of looks, multi-media and mobile gaming. Let’s revisit that old time, briefly by having a glance at those cell phones which remained the talk-of-the-town-a decade ago!

At first, many of the kids would have thought it to be a remote control-including me! I was so small at that time. Some might have mistaken it to be a gaming console too.
