    5. 5. www.thebergstromgroup.com telling the story of new China As the first generation influenced by foreign exposure, 80s have a much wider field to choose from when it comes to icons.

Some friends of mine got their pagers and I was really jealous. But, I never got one. Then came the mobile phone. I still remember my mom’s pager number, even now.

    6. 6. www.thebergstromgroup.com telling the story of new China The 90s generation has been impacted not only by access to new information but has been impacted by the 24/7 availability of it. This generation is the first to live and breathe multi-tasking and instant access as a way of life, not merely as an option. I started to use WAP on my mobile phone last year. It’s such a convenient function and allows me to check my accounts on Renren, Kaixin, and QQ anytime, anywhere. Plus, it only charges me 5 RMB to download 30 megabytes a month. I have heard of Wi-Fi but my Sharp phone doesn’t support it. Sharp mobile phones are nothing but a pretty layout. Not much is supported, only old versions of QQ. I will definitely try wi-fi when I can afford a new mobile phone. – Ariel, 19, female, Nantong
