Today’s mobile phones can do a lot more than a computer of the nineties. It hasn’t happened by accident. Like all things mobile phone went through its own evolution. Now we have 7 mm thick Motorola Razr but things were different back then.
Do you know the that there was a $3995 mobile phone which weighed two pounds and was a foot long? Motorola DynaTAC 8000X was released in 1982 and all it would do is make calls besides storing a whopping thirty contacts and going dead after an hour of usage.
From the clunky unaffordable devices to the ultra slim touch screen phones mobile phones came a long and a cost a whole lot less now. The current generation phone costs just $200 and comes with features like 4G, Web browsing and Gaming. It only took 20 odd years.
As per the infographic the phone of 2020 would cost $200 and come loaded with long battery life, epayment support and high definition graphics. Now that’s what I expect because I already see those features in the current generation phones. May be the next generation phones will improve a great deal on battery life. The infographic does a neat job of chronicling the past but fails at predicting the future.
Phones in 2020 would be much different and probably more advanced. There could be bendable touch screens, biometric identifications, advanced facial recognition or retina scans, and probably screens which can expand at the click of a button.
