In 1997, when I lived in Brussels, everyone had their Nokias; I was amazed at the lively European cell phone culture.
Back in the states, we still had our “Bag phone,” which cost over a dollar a minute, and had a regular handset and car adapter (no battery). Your car died, your phone died.
Ha! I remember the Bag Phone. My dad was a reporter until the mid ’90s and he would lug one around. What a long way we’ve come.
