Before the Apple iPhone… Before the Motorola Razr… There were cell phones that were so bulky (such as the Motorola DynaTAC— born in 1983), that you could hardly hold them up!
Motorola MicroTAC 9800X
This had one of first display screens in 1996 and a more convenient and portable cell with the ability to close.
Released in 1998, this was a very popular cell phone for some time. Also, the first phone I remember getting from my parents after they were done with it!
In 2001, Nokia introduced this phone with more added features then the ones previous including a calendar!
PalmOne Treo 600
Before Blackberry became very popular, this phone was a great color phone adapted in 2003. It was a very popular multi-task phone among business professionals.
Motorola Razr V3
The infamous Motorola Razr! In 2004 this phone was introduced and raised the bar for sleek phones of its time. Equipped with a camera and many other features, the Razr has been improved a few more times, due to its popularity.
Although there are many other competitors to the iPhone, such as HTC and LG phones, the iPhone still remains one of the most popular cell phones on the market today, beginning in 2007.
Of course this list is just a scratch on the surface of all the cell phones that have come out throughout the years. Check out the gallery to see other popular adaptions.
