Watch This: The Evolution of the Cell Phone, As Depicted by ‘Saved by the Bell’

Did you hear the news? The iPhone 5 will be unveiled, rumor has it, at noon (CST) today!

But 20 years ago, Zack Morris was on the bleeding edge of Mobile Information Technologies. And no wonder Zack was so smug! He was the first high-schooler to ever have his cell phone confiscated by the principal!

What’s weird is how, in the course of Saved by the Bell, Zack Morris upgrades to a slick, silver flip-phone, but then promptly downgrades to his former black brick. And then he downgrades again, to a massive beige log! Financial troubles in the Morris household, maybe?

Thanks, Buzzfeed.
