Remember when the mobile phone was called a bag phone? This was a major accomplishment at the time. Then manufacturers began the miniaturization of the phone and they became smaller than a cigarette pack. The size reduction drove the market for new phone sales. People changed phones every two years so they would have the smallest device....LISTED UNDER: Crystals
