This is my mobile phone owning timeline. Started with Vodafone locked (in 2002!) UK based Sendo phone to World’s first large screen phone HD2 from Korea’s wonderful phone company HTC.
It seems mobile phones are being sold as an almost fashion accessory nowadays,with people changing their phones every year or so. Due to market hype & affordability how often people buy a new mobile phone ?
It’s amazing that just 15 years ago, phones were black and white bricks and now some are more powerful than some people’s home computers. The technology with cell phones is increasing so fast! Not long after you buy a phone, a nicer, newer model with more features comes out ! So, do you keep up with the technology and constantly buy new phones? Or do you still have the very first cell phone you ever bought?
I buy when I feel bored with the phone I use. Probably just once a year, as long as it work and I can text and make calls that all that matters to me. But it all changed, when I decided to gift myself a new HD2 on my previous birthday. Its slim, trendy and lean design always makes me look & fiddle with it ! If not, word-feud, angry-birds makes me go for it frequently :)
HTC-HD2 is very simple and straightforward phone & it has an amazing hardware. It’s just like a platform, I can run any rooted Android build on it. So don’t have to buy new android for quite some time. With the advent of amazing Android applications I can run any new Android flavors which hits the xda-dev space. I’m absolutely enjoying the pleasure, versatility, liberty and flexibility of Android.
