The cellphone or smartphone that you are holding is now a testament to the evolution of technology for decades. Intrigued by the first cellphone released by every legendary HP brand? At what age did you have your first cellphone? Mobile was first sold globally in 1973 with the Motorola company as the first manufacturer.
In the past, the number of cellphone manufacturers could be counted on the fingers because HP was an expensive and rare item. But now almost everyone in the world from all walks of life has a cellphone. Cellphones that were initially only able to be used for making calls and sending SMS have now become increasingly sophisticated as well. You can play games, listen to music, and surf the internet.
The sophisticated cellphone that is in your hands today would not have been created without in-depth research and technological developments. Smartphones that now use touch screens, high-quality cameras, and cutting-edge operating systems are an evolution from HP’s heavy weight, black and white screens, and large antennas. In this article, ApkVenue wants to discuss the first 7 cellphones created by legendary brands in the world, especially those that were popular in Indonesia. Check it out!
Nokia is the most phenomenal HP brand in the ’90s to early 2000s. This Finnish manufacturer dominated the world cellphone market until its fall in 2014. The first cellphone made by Nokia was the Mobira Cityman 900 which was released in 1987. However, the first cellphone that was mass-sold and used the Nokia name was the Nokia 1011 which was released in 1992. This old school cellphone has an antenna that can be extended to increase the signal. Nokia 1011 memory is so small that it can only store 99 phone numbers, gang.
Apple has a lot of products. In 2007, Steve Jobs’s company made a breakthrough by launching their first smartphone, the iPhone. Apple’s first iPhone is often called the iPhone 2G or iPhone 1. This cellphone is also quite revolutionary where it operates using the Touchscreen while other cellphones are still using a stylus or regular buttons. Unexpectedly, the iPhone which was once underestimated has now become one of the highest-rated smartphone brands in the world.
Blackberry is a popular Canadian HP product with its physical QWERTY keypad. This cellphone was popularized by former US president Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential campaign. Blackberry 850 is their first device which was introduced in 1999. However, this device can only be used for sending email and browsing only. The first Blackberry device that deserves to be called an HP is the Blackberry 5810. This device can be used for phone calls even though you have to use a headset.
Samsung is currently the king that controls the entire smartphone market in the world, followed by Huawei, Oppo and Apple. The sophistication of the Samsung cellphone that we know today was initiated by their first cellphone, the SH-100 which was first released in 1988. SH-100 is the first HP designed and made by Korea. Unfortunately, Samsung cellphones at that time could only sell around one thousand to two thousand units because they were less popular.
Motorola is the first company in the world to create and sell mobile phones. Motorola’s first cellphone was nicknamed the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X. Released in 1983, of course, HP became the most advanced technology at that time. This cellphone offers 30 minutes of talktime, 6 hours of standby, and can store up to 30 phone numbers. Therefore, it is only natural that this cellphone is sold at a price of 2639 pounds sterling or if it is matched with the current exchange rate to around IDR 56 million. Crazy!
Ericsson is a Swedish mobile phone company that has been producing cellphones since the 1980s. In 2001, Ericsson merged with Sony as their HP business continued to decline. The effort turned out to be successful, gang. Combining Ericsson technology and Sony innovation, Sony Ericsson creates the smash hit P800 series. This cellphone has a function like a PDA, only more sophisticated. Color touch screen, support for external memory, and rear camera make this cellphone able to compete again with the king of the market at that time, Nokia and Motorola.
Even though OPPO and Huawei now dominate China’s cellphones, we still can’t forget Xiaomi’s services. Xiaomi is destroying a sophisticated cellphone manufacturer at a cheap price. In line with its motto “Innovation for Everyone”, Xiaomi released its sophisticated mobile phone, the Xiaomi Mi 1, at a fairly affordable price in 2011. Armed with the Snapdragon S3 and the Adreno 220 graphics processor, the Xiaomi Mi 1 was released at a price of around Rp. 2.3 million. No wonder this cellphone was ordered by 300 thousand units in 34 hours.
