Early mobile phones
The first cell phone was developed by Motorola and became available to the public in 1983. It was a big unit that weighed 1.75 lbs (almost 0.8 kg), offered only 30 minutes of talk time, and was quite expensive. This mobile phone was quickly replaced by the Nokia 5110, thanks to its smaller size, longer battery life, and replaceable cases that allowed the owner to regularly change the way the phone looked. In 1996, Motorola introduced StarTAC, the first truly pocket-sized phone. This unit’s meager 3.1-oz (88-g) weight and innovative clamshell design paved the way for smaller and smaller phones.
Mobile phone technology
Mobiles also advanced in terms of technology. In 1993, cell phones offered text messaging for the first time, quickly followed by improvement in display, battery life, storage size and more. By the 2000s, the first smart phones were invented pioneered by Blackberry. These mobiles featured email capabilities, BBM, and a QWERTY keyboard among others.
The new mobile phones and smartphones we know today are characterized by impressive features such as high-resolution displays, touchscreens, intuitive sensors, clear sound quality, long battery life, mobile app support, sleek styling and a high-performance operating system.
