Mobile Phone Evolution

My sister got a new mobile phone for Christmas. The latest consumer Nokia (7210 I believe). With a colour screen and polyphonic ring, it makes the phones of even 12 months ago look clunky. The current rapid development cycle of mobile phone hardware is strikingly reminiscent of the PC revolution during the late 80’s. Remember CGA? EGA? VGA? Each graphics standard made the one before look positively archaic. Same with sound technology. When the SoundBlaster card first hit the scene it was a revelation. Suddenly the PC was up there as a gaming platform. Well guess what’s making waves in the mobile market currently? Russ knows!
