Remember when a mobile phone was the size of a brick and it took a week to charge up? Now you can take fantastic photos, navigate the globe and hold the internet in the palm of your hand

Protect your bubble take a look at the best mobile phone innovations that we couldn’t live without.

High-resolution cameras

It would be the fair to say that camera-phone technology in the past decade has evolved at a ridiculously rapid pace.

From the days when it seemed it would only be of interest to estate agents wishing to send each other photos of dodgy bedsits we’re now in a situation where every single second of human history is being documented around the globe by a bunch of eager citizen journalists.

The iPhone is the most popular “camera” on Flickr, while recent innovation from Nokia now sees the Swedish company offering a 41 megapixel smartphone smasher.

Meanwhile, camera manufacturers look on in fear – could the next innovation be the one to finish off the traditional snapper for good?

Mobile data / internet

You only have to spend 10 minutes on the London Underground to witness the addictiveness of mobile internet in the 21st century. Otherwise rational human beings look visibly depressed when faced with the prospect of 10 minutes away from Facebook.

With the whole of the mobile world at your fingertips, never again will you have to spend longer than it takes your 3G signal to fire up Wikipedia to win a pub argument.

Portable video/audio

First the Walkman, then the iPod revolutionised the way we listen to music on the move. MP3 players the size of chewing gum packets wowed us initially, but now we have everything on the one device, even that seems pointless.

Not only that, but you can also stream live television or watch pre-downloaded video files all while sitting on the bus – it seems like only yesterday Tomorrrow’s World was telling us about this distant dream – where did the time go?

GPS navigation
When was the last time you picked up an A-Z to plan your route to unfamiliar destination? In fact, when was the last time you planned a route?

Now that a handy map is installed on your mobile, you can just rock up somewhere approximately close to where you’re going then let a little dot guide you the rest of the way… all well and good until the signal or battery dies.

Portable gaming

Tubes, trains and buses used to be filled with people reading books and newspapers… now it’s full of commuters battling it out for a new top score on Angry Birds and Doodle Jump.

It started of course with Snake when Nokia dominated the mobile landscape, but who knows what else is round the corner. There’s also some pretty decent downloads for more hardcore gamers too, providing your battery life holds out.

It’s impossible to deny that mobile phones these days represent an incredible powerhouse of innovation that fits snugly in your pocket.
