A cool infographic design, the Evolution of the Cell Phone by Zitron takes a light-hearted look at the timeline of phone features and the phones that first had each feature. The second part of the infographic, Our Hopes and Dreams, takes a humorous stab at how the reality of our cell phones rarely lives up to our expectations (until the next Buzzword comes along!).

I love to see the big companies experimenting with new media like infographics! The Growth of Mobile Marketing and Tagging was published by Microsoft Tag last week, and explores the data behind mobile devices.
Sure, it seems like everyone’s got a cell phone – but what are the hard numbers? How many people have smart phones, and what demographic is the most active group in mobile socialization? (Surprise — it’s actually not teenagers!) Find out the statistics on the present (and future!) of mobile marketing in our new infographic
They also broke the graphics down into individual pieces (roughly) and created a presentation version for anyone that wants to use it on SlideShare:
Thanks Elliott for send me a link!

From the French site, NowhereElse.fr, comes an infographic iPhone 5 Rumor Roundup. I like how each rumor has an appropriate image, and a rating of how likely they think the feature will make it into the next iPhone.
I posted the English version, but the French version is available here.
Thanks to Miguel for sharing it on Google Buzz!
From DigitalSurgeons comes The History of Apple’s iPod, an infographic timeline. This one has been sitting in my submissions inbox for months, and I’m only now getting around to posing it (sorry guys).
I specifically like the multiple levels of information included. Of course you can see images of the iPods that were released every year, but surrounding that is some of the information that was shared by Apple about the iTunes business, how many iPods were sold, how many songs were sold, when new services were offered (like HD video) and more recently things like apps and Ping.
Nice job guys!
I pose this question to my readers: Is this infographics? I think it walks a fine line between being artistic and infographic. While a lot of numbers are shown and communicated to the viewers, they aren’t represented in any graphic form, just text. What do you think?
Thanks to Darren for sending in the link.
