LONDON, July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Despite nearly a decade passing since the release of the Motorola Razr, iPhone 3G and Nokia 3310, new research from eBay.co.uk, which launched its own app in 2008, has found that small screens are still a must-have accessory for fashionistas wanting to shop on-the-go - with over two billion searches in the fashion category via mobile in the last 12 months.
'08 saw a jilted Carrie Bradshaw's pink bejewelled Motorola Razr dramatically 'chucked' into the sea in the 'Sex in the City' film with the flip phone subsequently becoming an iconic phone for an entire generation.
Meanwhile the Nokia 3310 has fared better as a mobile must have. When the classic Nokia 3310 phone was remade last year, David and Victoria Beckham were among first celebs to desperately get their hands on the retro remake - perhaps one of the best-selling mobiles in the noughties with eBay.co.uk currently selling nearly five per day.
And with 2008 also marking the fierce BlackBerry Bold vs. iPhone 3G debate, social powerhouse, Kim Kardashian, has admitted multiple times to having a stash of Blackberry Bold smartphones stacked up just in case one breaks - despite preferring iPhones for her statement selfies. eBay.co.uk has 25,000 Blackberry related listings and more than 90,000 for the latest iPhone X.
To celebrate the last 10 years of portable shopping, eBay.co.uk has pulled together a selection of fast facts:
