First Camera Phone Photograph

In 1997 this photo made history by being the first image captured on a mobile phone and sent to 2000 people around the world. As the camera phone was still a concept at the time, an entrepeneur, Philippe Kahn combined a digital camera and mobile phone to send photos in real time. The image above, is of Kahn’s newborn daughter in the hospital on June 11th. As a result of this Philippe Kahn is the person credited with inventing the camera phone.
