Pink Mobile Phones

Updated on February 16, 2010

Everybody seems to have a cell phone these days, everybody from grandmothers to kids. In some cases people have replaced their home phone with a mobile phone. Mobile phones have actually been around in some form since 1911! Lars Ericsson had a telephone installed in his car that could be hooked up to local phone line when the car was stopped. It wasn't a radio phone, you just connected two wires to the local system. You might recognize his name, he started a company now known as Sony Ericsson.

There was a private phone company in Kansas in 1959 that offered mobile service to customers, they called the local switchboard which then connected them to whoever they were trying to call. The phones were installed in cars and grain combines in the local area. All these cell phones were basically big black phones. They got smaller so that they could be carried around, but the they were still big and black, or beige. Remember the old show "Saved by the Bell"? Zack had one of the old "brickle" cell phones - the old Motorola Dynatac phone.

By the year 2000 phones were getting smaller and lighter and everybody started to get one. Cell phone makers wanted to find a way to get their phones to stand out in the crowded cell market. It seems like you've been able to get pink mobile phones ever since cell phones have been around but that hasn't been the case. The Motorola Razr was one of the first popular pink phones, and it come out in 2005. It was marketed as a fashion accessory and was the first in a long line of pink flip phones. At first it was a boutique phone, but after a year or so the price was dropped and it seems like everybody had to have one. It became the default "free" phone offered by many cell phone services, notably Verizon, although they disabled many of the standard Motorola features.

Now a lot of the standard phones offered by companies have cameras built in, a lot of them can play mp3's too.  The memory in a lot of these mobile phones is on Mini SD card so you can expand your memory just by adding a new card.  That way you can store more video or music.  Some of the newer smart phones have an operating system that allow them to run applications, like the iPhone or the Droid.  They can browse the web, and are almost like PDA's or mini computers.  The Blackberry cell phone has blurred the lines between the PDA and phone.  It's got a regular keyboard (miniature of course) but it's not alone in this aspect.  Many of the slider phones (pink slider phones too) have a keyboard on them, you slide them to expose the keyboard.

Pink Cell Phone That Started it All.

The LG phone has mainly replaced the Razr as the phone to have - outside of the iPhone which is out of the price range of many people. The LG Chocolate is one of the more popular versions, you can get it as a pink slider phone, there is also a version called the Cookie which is a pink touch phone, similar to the iPhone in looks and in operating system. The Chocolate is a Verizon phone, some models are flip phones, some are sliders, but many of them also double as mp3 players with 1 gig of memory (expandable with a mini SD card up to 8 megabytes), enough to hold 250 songs.  Some models have EDR (enhanced data rate) and you can use it as a modem for your laptop.  It's a long cry from those big brick cell phones of the past.

If you're looking fro a Samsung pink phone there's the Tocco Lite, a  pink touch phone, similar to some of the Chocolate models or the iPhone.  It's also a 3 Megapixel camera and a video and a mp3 player, and like the Chocolate also expandable using a micro SD card.  The ability to take pictures and play mp3's has become standard on most phones these days, except for the the very cheapest, even a lot of the prepay phones now can take photos.

       ( 2012.02.9 12:28 ) : I wanted to draft you the very small word so as to thank you so much the meomnt again with your pleasant advice you've provided above. It has been so remarkably generous with people like you to convey extensively exactly what a few individuals might have offered for sale for an e book in making some bucks for themselves, most importantly considering the fact that you might well have done it if you considered necessary. Those advice in addition worked like a easy way to fully grasp that many people have the same dreams just as mine to know lots more pertaining to this issue. I'm sure there are some more pleasurable meomnts in the future for folks who scan through your website.
