@DownPW absolutely. Then there’s also the cost of having to replace aging hardware - for both the production site, and the recovery location.
50 moments in 50 years
This really is a great read and a trip down memory lane in terms of how the mobile telephone has evolved over the years into the devices we know today.
Some surprises along the journey (based on little known facts), but definitely well worth the read.
Interestingly, the reference to the UK’s first mobile phone call which was made in 1985 is featured in My Journey which can be found here.
I can certainly draw parallel with the BlackBerry devices. I had several of these when RIM was the technology leader. It’s surprising how things turn around - one minute they were industry pioneers, and the next, they were on a path to rapid demise.
Then Nokia introduced the N95. I had one of these in 2006 for a short period, coupled with a Treo (who remembers those?)…
Enjoy the ride!
@DownPW If you don’t mind a retro display type of Dot Matrix - why on earth would anyone want that? I get the concept, but it’s nothing more than a gimmick and adds zero value to the operation of the handset.
Sustainable product… with a £600 plus price tag…
