Mobile Phones Collector In China


Mobile crazy: Meet the man who may have the biggest phone collection in China
50-year-old Li Qinglin has spent 20 years collecting nearly 3000 mobile phones in Changchun, Northeast China’s Jilin Province
Since 1998, Li got his first mobile phone, a Motorola 8800. Since then, he has not been able to stop himself from buying the latest models of as many brands as he can find.
Li owns nearly all of the mobiles sold in China since the 1980s. Some handsets in his collection can fetch a high price among other mobile phone aficionados.
Li said “I hope someday I can have a museum to show these mobile phones to people. These mobile phones witnessed the development of personal communication in China and the change in mobile technology from the first analogue generation to 3G and 4G.”
