Remember life before #mobilephones? I do.
We read newspapers. We saved up for CDs and tapes. We had maps, actual physical maps that you had to read. Dating was difficult (but I was too young for that). Pranks calling was a thing (I was not too young for that). Cameras had actual film! Somehow it’s easy to forget just how much disruption and innovation there has been in just a few decades. So I’ve chosen to study the mobile phone industry for this #datavisualisation. I’ve painstakingly put together this data series using a variety of sources and even ploughed through some extremely old corporate filings.
I hope you enjoy the story here.
