HD TV quickly became the norm during this time, as flat-screen televisions were starting to fall in price.
Internet access on cellphones became common in the late 2000s. This transition was aided by the rollout of faster 3G Internet networks and the introduction of larger touchscreen phones. Although many phones had Internet features at the start of the decade, they were often awkward and costly to use.
