Whether iPhone or Android, over 88% of Canadians have a smartphone. Half of those check their device at least every 30 minutes. We have witnessed the evolution of mobile computing technology firsthand over the past decade, and today’s smartphones are several multiples faster than current laptops.
“Products to Cell” explores vintage and antique items that have or almost been replaced by smartphones and corresponding apps. Internet access via a phone rather than a desktop or laptop is on the rise, and communication, fun and education are at our fingertips. Explore items that are a simple screen tap away in the present day.
Our display is located in the upper level of Waterdown’s branch of the Hamilton Public Library. The accompanying brochure is available at the display, or download your own copy.
Many thanks to the members who lent items for use in the display. A special thank you to the Allen family for their large contribution.
