Old Tech that Kids don’t know!
Japan’s last pager has emitted its final beep.
Tokyo Telemessage, the country’s only remaining pager provider, shut down its radio signals this week, following decades of dwindling subscribers.
Pagers first went on sale in Japan in the 1960s and were known as pokeberu, or „pocket bells”. They were a popular way of contacting someone on the go. Callers could send a short message by dialling a pager number from a landline.
