Thanks to @docmobile on Twitter I think I’ve nailed down my first-ever cell phone — I’m fairly certain it was the Nokia 638 on Canada’s Bell Mobility network. Thing is, I’d love to get a photo of it in baby blue for the book, but so far I can only find this low-res graphic of a yellow one.
P.S. Props to the Nokia Museum for putting their stuff online. I’d love to know if the images there are Creative Commons…
