In a report filed by MUSEUM ASSOCIATION, the museum collection has more than 2,000 unique handsets from 200 different manufacturers displaying the evolution of mobile phones from 1984 to the present day. It aims to inspire the next generation of engineers and designers.
Reports reveal that Vodafone has signed a five-year sponsorship deal to boost the development of the museum, which will be online-only at first. The partnership aims to enable the museum to reach a wider audience and continue its search for any missing handsets.
Ben Wood, a Founder, and technology research analyst stated;
“I’ve been collecting phones for more than 25 years. Over the last three decades the mobile phone has become part of the fabric of society and the design diversity, from early transportable phones to the latest smartphones with flexible displays, is something to behold.
“When the online museum launches later this year, we want it to be a rich learning resource and a way to inspire young people to go on to create incredible mobile innovations of their own in the future.
“We are delighted to welcome Vodafone as our first major sponsor to help bring the museum to a wider audience and ensure that more people have the chance to be amazed and inspired by these devices and the fascinating history of mobile communications.”
According to a report filed by MUSEUM ASSOCIATION, Wood and co-founder Matt Chatterley joined forces to make the museum a reality in 2019, after Wood had first explored ideas for a mobile phone museum in 2004. Both leveraged their industry connections to add rare and milestone devices to the collection.

UK consumer director at Vodafone, Max Taylor, said;
“More than 35 years ago, Vodafone made the UK’s first mobile phone call on the Vodafone Transportable VT1, a handset which was the size of a car battery and weighed even more. Looking back at those early devices and everything which came later tells a fascinating story, not only of the technology itself and how it has evolved, but also of how we communicate.

“Our smartphones are now at the very centre of our world, and this is a fitting celebration of the role they play. We hope that by supporting Ben and Matt’s unique museum collection – the most comprehensive collection anywhere in the world – we’ll be able to help people reminisce about the devices they’ve had over the years, and get excited about what devices might be able to do for them in the future.”
While the project will launch as an online showcase, the team behind the museum hopes to work with other museums and sponsors in the future to curate pop-up exhibits of the devices in its collection.
MUSEUM ASSOCIATION reveals that the museum’s website features its Most Wanted list, a call-out for donations of iconic handsets not yet in its collection, including the TAGHeuer Meridiist, Nokia 7705 Twist, and Motorola Aura.
