Hey, I just noticed a picture of me (or at least a reflection) on a BGR article from last June.

Anyway, with that aside, there’s quite a thought provoking article from   at BGR who is outraged at the way the history of mobile phones has been rewritten by ‘many Americans’.

It seems to be in response to articles that surmise the history of phones as being Moto to Sidekick to BlackBerry to iPhone, namely this one from Wired. Tero wants a global perspective – history beyond North America.

Tero feels that marginalising the truth and ignoring the significance Nokia has played is not insulting only to Nokia and the Finns but 80% of those that experienced mobile since 1990. Nokia was the creator of many breakthrough technologies in mobile. If we’re going to talk about history, we can’t ignore Nokia.

I guess they say History is written by the winners. You can see from the Bieber generation that as far as they’re aware, Apple invented everything.

Cheers capedonut for the tip!
