 Timeline



     

In the beginning, cell / mobile phones could make and receive telephone calls, and then they could send and receive text messages, but now - well they allow you to use a whole host of other services such as email, Internet access, short-range wireless communications (infrared, Bluetooth), business applications, gaming, and photography.

In 1973, Dr Martin Cooper of Motorola demonstrated the first hand-held mobile phone, using a handset that weighed 2 1/2 lbs (about 1 kg). In 1983, the DynaTAC 8000X was the first to be commercially available. In the twenty years from 1990 to 2010, worldwide mobile phone subscriptions grew from 12.4 million to more than 4.6 billion, penetrating economies all over the world.

Nokia 1100 - the best selling mobile phone ever

Nokia 1100

The Nokia 1100

The Nokia 1100 is a very simple GSM mobile phone produced by Nokia. and 250 million of them have been sold since its launch in late 2003 (I even have two myself, although only one is still in working order). The Nokia 1100 is the world's best selling phone handset and was once the best selling consumer electronics device in the world. Sadly, the model is currently discontinued.

The Motorola RAZR

The Motorola RAZR is a series of clamshell mobile phones (also known as flip phones) produced by Motorola, and is one of the series in the 4LTR line. First developed in July 2003, they were released in 2004.

The iPhone 4S

Now (in 2012) we look to phones like the iPhone 4S to satisfy our ever-increasing mobile phone needs. The iPhone 4S is a touchscreen slate smartphone that was developed by Apple Inc.. It is the fifth generation of the iPhone (the first of which was released in 2007), a device that combines a widescreen iPod with a touchscreen, mobile phone, and internet communicator.
