Celebrating the 25 years of mobile devices, NTT DoCoMo, a leading Japanese service provider, put together an exhibit to showcase the evolution of cell phones over the last two and a half decades.

NTT DoCoMo, which has been around for 20 years, is featuring their exhibit during Tokyo Designers Week 2012. The exhibit features over 600 mobile devices starting from 1987 to the present day, marking the technological advancements companies have made through designs, size, shape and function. As guests browse the wide collection of mobile devices—from ancient clunky devices to modern slim smartphones—the evolution of cell phones is clearly an eyeopener to how much the world has progressed over the last 25 years. The exhibit also illustrates the trends, in style and in necessity, of technology throughout the years.
