Evolution of Cell Phones
Mr Cooper, born December 26, 1928, wanted people to be able to carry their phones with them anywhere. While he was a project manager at Motorola in 1973, Cooper set up a base station in New York with the first working prototype of a cellular telephone, the Motorola Dyna-Tac. After some initial testing in Washington for the F.C.C., Mr. Cooper and Motorola took the phone technology to New York to show in public. 1973 In 1984, Motorola released the Motorola DynaTAC to the public. It contained a few features save for a basic numeric keypad, a single-line display and a deplorable battery with only one hour of talk time. Even so, it was revolutionary for the time, which is why only the richest of the rich could afford to purchase one or pay for the accompanying voice service, which cost $50.00 per month, not including $0.40/minute during peak and $0.24/minute during non-peak hour fees. It was during the 90s that the type of modern-day cellular technology you see everyday began to form. The first text messages, digital signal processors and high-tech networks (iDEN, CDMA, GSM) all sprouted into existence during this tumultuous time period. In 1993, IBM and BellSouth teamed up to release the Simon Personal Communicator, the first mobile phone to feature PDA features. Not only could it send and receive voice calls, but it could also serve as an address book, calculator, pager and fax machine. Plus, it offered the first-ever touchscreen by which customers could use their fingers or a stylus to make calls and create memos. 1983: First Mobile Phone 1989: Flip Phones Six years after the DynaTAC appeared, Motorola took a step further by releasing what became the inspiration for the first-ever flip phone. Dubbed the MicroTAC personal cellular phone, this analog device introduced a revolutionary new kind of flip design wherein the mouthpiece folded over the keypad. In addition, it measured only 9 inches long and weighed under 1 pound, making it the lightest cellular device ever produced. The 90's 1993: First PDA Phone 1996: First Clamshell Flip Phone Half a decade after the original MicroTAC, Motorola released an upgrade known as the StarTAC. Inspired by its predecessor, the StarTAC became the first-ever true flip phone. It operated on GSM networks in the United States, included support for SMS text messaging, added digital functions like a contact book and was the first phone to support lithium-ion batteries. Plus, the device weighed only 3.1 ounces. 1998: First Candybar Phone Nokia popped up on the scene in 1998 with the first-ever candybar phone, the Nokia 6160. Weighing only 6 ounces, the 5.2-inch tall device sported a monochrome display, an external antenna and a rechargeable battery with a whopping 3.3-hour talk time. Because of its price and ease of use, the Nokia 6160 ended up becoming Nokia's best-selling device of the 90s. 1999: First BlackBerry The first BlackBerry cellular device appeared in the late 90s as a two-way pager. It featured a full QWERTY keyboard and could be used to transmit SMS/email messages and pages. Plus, it offered an 8-line display, a calendar and an organizer. Due to a lack of interest in mobile email devices at the time, however, the device was used primarily by those individuals who worked in the corporate industry. 1996: First smartphone Nokia 9000 Communicator first smartphone. This was one of the first phones that ran on a proccesing chip that can be found in computers. Nokia 7110 is the first phone with a WAP Browser. The browser may not have been that great but it is the first of its kind. Also not that attractive due the prices of the plans for the browser. 1999: First Cellphone with BROWSER Nokia 7110 is the first phone with a WAP Browser. The browser may not have been that great but it is the first of its kind. Also not that attractive due the prices of the plans for the browser. plans for the due to the 7110 is the first 1999: First Mp3 phone Samsung SPH-M100 Uproar first able to play mp3. Still not very usefull due to a very small storage device. But it is a first of it kind so cant be picky. The Smartphone Era (00s) The new millennium brought with it the emergence of integrated cameras, 3G/GPRS/EDGE networks and smartphones, as well as the final dissemination of analog cellular networking in favor of digital networking. Phones Today 2001: First QWERTY keyboard Nokia 5510 is the first to have a QWERTY keyboard. This is means it has a full keyboard. Helpful while trying to send text messages or typing memos.Still not very usefull due to a very small storage device. But it is a first of it kind so cant be picky. 2000: First Bluetooth Phone The Ericsson T36 introduced Bluetooth technology to the cellular world, thus allowing consumers to wirelessly connect their phones to their computers. The phone also offered worldwide connectivity via 900/1800/1900-band GSM, voice recognition technology and Aircalendar, a tool that allowed consumers to receive real-time updates to their calendar or contacts folder. 2002: First BlackBerry Smartphone Tired of making PDAs, Research in Motion (RIM) finally took the plunge in 2002 with the release of the BlackBerry 5810. It was the first BlackBerry PDA to feature cellular connectivity. Operating along a GSM network, the BlackBerry 5810 allowed users to send e-mails, organize their data and prepare memos. Unfortunately, it lacks a speaker and a microphone, meaning a headset was required to use it. 2002: The Sanyo SCP-5300 removed the need to buy a Kodak, as it was the first cellular device to feature an integrated camera with a dedicated snapshot button. Unfortunately, it was limited to a 640x480 resolution, 4x digital zoom and 3-foot range. Regardless, users of the phone could snap photos on the go and then later upload them to their PC using a bundled software suite. First Camera Phone 2004: First Ultra-Thin Phone Prior to the release of the Motorola Razr v3 in 2004, phones tended to be big and bulky. The Razr changed this with its its ridiculously thin, 14mm-thick frame of aircraft-grade aluminum. Other highlights included an internal antenna, a chemically-etched keypad and blue backlighting. It was, in essence, the first phone built to not only provide great functionality, but to also exude style and elegance. 2007: Apple iPhone When Apple entered the cellular industry in 2007, everything changed. Apple replaced the keyboard and keypad with a multi-touch touchscreen display that allowed customers to feel as if they were physically manipulating data with their fingers: clicking links, stretching/shrinking photos and flipping through albums. Plus, it brought the first ever fully-featured platform to cell phones. It was as if they took a computer operating system and squished it into a tiny phone. 2003: First color screen blackberry BlackBerry 7210 was the first blackberry to have a color screen. Blackberrys were the ultimate phones back then for bussiness. They can check your email, make calls, send text messages, check you websites, and had a color screen. 2008:
iPhone 3g The iPhone 3G ushered in a ton of new features that were missing from the original device (but not all of them, we're still waiting on MMS support, Apple!). The most obvious updates included a 3G chip for faster surfing on AT&T's HSDPA network, and Apple's brand new application store which is also available on the original iPhone and on the iPod Touch. The iPhone remains king of multimedia in the cell phone space, and it's still on top of the touch game: not a single phone has come close to delivering the same perfect multi-touch experience that the iPhone offers, and Zeus knows there's been a ton of attempts. At a cheaper price point than its predecessor, the iPhone 3G is a hard device to pass up. Cell phone technology has evolved at a mind-shattering pace since the 1980s, moving from a 2-pound cell phone to having mobile phones weighing as little as 48g. To put this in perspective, the "brick` phone weighed 861.8 grams.

With so many advanced cell phones on the market, many people are in utter confusion about what all the cell phone terms mean and how or why it would affect them. In the next paragraphs, I will try to explain some of the cell phone lingo to help bring understanding to consumers as to what they need and why.

One of the biggest and most important features in cell phones today is Bluetooth. Bluetooth technology is named after a 10th century Danish king who unified warring tribes in his kingdom. The name of this technology is derived from this unification and is a technology to unify different devices wirelessly. There are many Bluetooth enabled devices that can be used with today`s cell phones. Cell phones today can communicate with wireless hands-free devices, computers and even other phones. Bluetooth technology is an important and innovative technology that allows wireless connectivity from your phone to a vast amount of devices.
