1. Humble Beginnings
The first 3G networks were introduced in 2001, but there weren't many phones around to take advantage of their capabilities. It was only in 2003 when Sony Ericsson introduced its first 3G phone that was also able to make video calls. The quality of video calls on the Z1010 was not great though, as the networks at the time were slow in comparison with today's standards, and the video call camera supported a meager 176-by-144 (QCIF) pixels resolution.
