The Wonderful Invention of Modern Mobile Phones

By: Maria Literral
These days, our the mobile phone are essential to us that it's hard to picture life without them. However, they're a quite new invention. this article traces the history of mobile phones and questions what the future holds for it.

Mobile telephones started life whena number of users of mobile radio, known as the mobileers, popularised mobile phone technology. Mobile telephones were initially installed in vehicles permanently, although later versions of the radio, that were called transportables, could also be carried, which meant that they could be used as a mobile or as moveable two-way radio. during the early 1940s, Motorola developed a two-way radio in a bag, the walkie talkie, & this was widely regarded as one of the first mobile phones.

The earliest mobile phones are now called first generation (1g) mobile phones.

The first hand held phone to be released on the us market was the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X in 1983. the mobile phone began to become popular in the 1980s with the introduction of cellphones that were based on cellular networks. mobile telephones were initially much bigger than current ones, & they were initially designed for installation in vehicles only, which is why they were called the car phone. these chunky units were later transformed for use as transportable telephones the size of a briefcase & the rest is history.

Second generation, also called 2-g, mobile telephones were introduced in the 1990s. 2-g telephone systems were characterised by their use of digital circuit switched transmission & the introduction of advanced & fast telephone to network signalling.

The introduction of 2-g systems saw telephones move from wonderful 1g telephones to teeny hand held items, which were far more moveable. this change was possible through developments in technology including more advanced batteries & energy efficient electronics.

The second generation mobile telephones had severaladvantages over 1g items. These included sms messaging, which became possible on gsm networks initially & eventually on all digital networks. the very first machine-sent message was sent in the uk in 1991. the very first person to person message was sent in finland in 1993. sms messaging soon became the communication method of preference & the general public prefer sending text messages to making voice calls.

After 2g mobile telephones, 3g mobile telephone technology arrived. 3-g is the name given to the third generation of mobile telephone standards and technology.

3-g technologies let network operators such as 02 and 3 to offer their customers a bigger range of advanced services, which include video calls, and broadband internet.

The very earliest 3-g network was launched by NTT DoCoMo in japan in may of 2001. it was launched commercially in japan on 1 october 2001. the very earliest European pre commercial 3g network was launched at the isle of man by Manx Telecom, who are owned by bt, in December 2001.

We hope our article has let you know more about the mobile phone's history. As you've probably realised, the mobile telephone's come a hell of a long way and will probably continue to go on even further.

4-g technology will certainly give the mobile phone a new lease of life, promising live streaming of tv and radio shows & much more. For mobile phones, it is clear that the sky's the limit.
