ago I feel so bored. So from out of nowhere, I suddenly asked one of my
colleagues “Karen, anung unang unang nagging celphone mo?”, she said its “Alcatel.
Ung nausong celphone kasabay ng Talk ‘n Text”, and she excitedly googled the “timeline”
of her mobile phones, and everyone in the groupo follows.
moment, I was inspired to muse over who’s the ancestor of my phone I am
currently using. So now, let’s start with my 1st ever mobile phone, ang ninuno
ng Nokia –
(1999) – it was a present from my mom actually. I told her “Ma, trade in tayo,
wag ka ng magprepare for my debut, bilhan mo na lang ako ng celphone”. So when
I had my Nokia 5110, naka isang timbang housing yata ako, umiilaw na antenna,
and later on, pinapalitan ko pa ng full transparent casing, kita ang wirings,
in na in! =)
3310 (2000) – uso n ung walang antenna, so my mom bought me the latest one. Nakakaedit
na ng tones, at mas madaming picture messages. Plus, nauuso na ang acetate, edi
umuso tayo. Hanggang sa hindi na “in” ang 3310. But I used this phone for more
than 4 years.
(2004) – uso na ang colored nun, so I bought CP na may kulay – kulay orange ang
backlight, lolz! I used this phone for several months lang, kasi even though it’s
magaan, mejo bulky sya due to its anti shock casing.
3650 (2005) – I bought this CP na when I had my OJT and accepted set of plans
for a resort. Saka I was going to Manila that time for my exams, dapat colored
na talaga. This is also the 1st CP ko na meron nang memory card.
8210 (2006) – I couldn’t remember the reason, bakit na demote ung celphone ko
hahaha. But eniwei, I think it’s the size, kasi Nokia 8210 is so tiny, can
almost slip inside the coin pocket. Kaso lang, I was working back then in
Makati, kaya habang MP3 songs na ang message alert tone ng mga tao, ako naka
standard pa din, kaya ayun, nakuntento na lang aq sa beep once. =))
6670 (2006) – a very good opportunity came when my manager offered a job n
Vietnam Branch, at dahil super grab ko na, me and my mom rushed into shopping
centre para bilhan aq ng new celphone. Syempre dapat level up. kaso, after 3
weeks, nadukot sa MRT Ortigas Station, gee-are-are-are-are!!!
3360 (2006) – at dahil naawa ang mama ko dahil iyak to death ako sa POEA (haha,
ate remember this eksena???), binilhan aq ng 2nd hand na 3360. Well at least
derecho na ang keypad, hindi na round dial like 3650. :D
(2007) – then I went to Hanoi Vietnam to work. At dun ko na inabangan ang
latest from Nokia. And the moment they released it to market, one day pa lng,
rush na kami ng officemate sa pinakamalapit na Nokia Hub. Good thing, it’s just
a walking distance from our office. And when I came back to Philipipnes, pina G-mask
ko pa para mas in. Until now, Temee (that his name) is still
Ericsson Aino (2009) – so I must break the Nokia Chain now. Well actually,
hindi ako ang pumutol. I had a very generous friend in Dubai (or naawa na lang
yata kay Temee), so she bought me this latest craze from Sony Ericsson. At bigtime
kasi GB-GB na ang memory card, touch screen, 8MP cam pa.
Samsung 1080T (2011) – when I came here in
Qatar, the first thing I did was to rush to the nearest phone hub and bought
new sim and celphone. At since sabi nila ”this is the most popular”, I bought
this, for only 70QR, my free prepaid load pa, that’s the reason why this CP is
sooo popular. =)
4G (2011) – for a simple reason, Iphone is the latest trend back then. So I
bought 32GB white Iphone 4G.
Iphone 4S (2012) – for a simple (again), mas hi-tech
hehe, so I upgraded into a 64GB. But after a few months lang, they released
Iphone 5. Well, ayoko nang mag upgrade, enough na =)
So that’s the family tree of my mobile phones.
It is so nice to reminisce these things, that while we are enjoying the most
expensive, most popular celphones of today’s generation, for once in our lives,
we also had a simple celphones, ung standard lang, polytones, limitado ang
messages na pwedeng ikeep, may antenna, at picture message. Simple lang diba, hindikumkplikado, konti lang ang but buttons, but retains its original purpose - communication.
