Older Cellphones Generations Motorola DynaTAC 8000X 1973 1993 Nokia Mobira Senator BellSouth/IBM Simon Personal Communicator 1982 1996 2000 2002 2007 and present day... Evolution of Mobile Phones Timeline PC World liked it so much that we named it our product of the year in 2003. While its voice capabilities were only amature, this was one of the first devices to offer truly functional mobile Web browsing, e-mail access, and instant messaging. Plus, it pioneered that nifty swiveling design. 2002 2004 Newer Cellphones Generations In 1973, Motorola showed off a prototype of the world's first portable cellular telephone. That phone, which measured more than a foot long, weighed almost 2 pounds, and cost $3995, ultimately became commercial available in 1983. Known as the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, its battery could provide 1 hour of talk time, and its memory could store 30 phone numbers. It may not have been pretty, but it did let you talk while on the go--if you could lift it. It may look more like a boom box than a portable phone, but this bulky device was actually Nokia's first mobile phone. Introduced in 1982, the Nokia Mobira Senator was designed for use in cars. After all, you wouldn't want to use this phone while walking: It weighed about 21 pounds. Motorola StarTAC A cell phone with PDA functions isn't news today. But it was in 1993. The Simon Personal Communicator, jointly marketed by IBM and BellSouth, was the first mobile phone to add PDA features. It was a phone, pager, calculator, address book, fax machine, and e-mail device in one package, albeit a 20-ounce package that cost $900. Before the Motorola StarTAC was introduced in 1996, cell phones were more about function than fashion.This 3.1-ounce clamshell-style phone, which could easily be clipped to a belt, was the smallest and lightest of its time. In fact, it was smaller and lighter than some of today's cell phones. Kyocera QCP6035 (2000) If you're one of the many fans of the Palm OS-based phone, you might want to thank Kyocera. The smart phone, which hit the retail market in early 2001 and cost between $400 and $500 was the first Palm-based phone to be widely available to users. It included a 8MB of memory, and sported a bland monochrome display, but it paved the way for future products. Danger Hip-hop (2002) Sanyo SCP-5300 (2002) Today, most cell phones come with a built-in camera. But, just a few years ago, a camera phone was hard to come by. In 2002, Sanyo and Sprint debuted the Sanyo SCP-5300 PCS phone, which they claimed was the first mobile phone available in America with a built-in camera. At its highest resolution, it captured VGA (640 by 480) images. Motorola Razr v3 (2004) Cell phones continued to get thinner and more stylish over the years, but it was the debut of the Motorola Razr v3 in 2004 that took design to another level. With its super-slim lines and sleek metallic look, the Razr quickly became the must-have accessory. Cellphones of today have the ability to record and play video, surf the Internet, load photos to social networking websites, and the ability to easily store contact information. The most significant advancement in cellphones is the improvement of the networks. Initially the first cellphones started as 1G networks. Today, cellphones run using a 4G network. People love things that make life easier. This desire will encourage cellphone manufacturers to continue to improve upon cellphone technology. In 2007, Apple Inc unveiled the Apple iPhone, which was the world’s first advanced touchscreen smartphone. It’s the first phone to have an operating system, the iOS, and by enabling apps to run on the phone, it had allowed cellphones to become the primary mobile device of use. Having an iPhone became a source of pride. In 2012, we have the Nokia Lumia 800, which runs on the Windows 7 Mobile Edition OS. No one could have imagined that in a mere 17 years, mobile phones could have made the leap from just being the alternative to landlines to becoming a computer, GPS, radio and our lifeline to the Internet, and still be able to fit in your pocket.
