Evolution of the Cell Phone - How Far Its Come


Cell phones have evolved immensely since 1983, both in design and function.

Mobile phones are just now beginning to be as vital to North Americans as they have been to Asians. You can always see what is coming to store shelves in the next six months to a year by looking at the models that are currently available in Japan.

North America also had a spotty 3G network that has only really been revamped recently in order to deal with increasing demands for faster loading speeds from mobile customers, whereas Asia and most of Europe have had proper 3G networks in place for some time.

Smart phones are high-end phones with specialized operating systems, like BlackBerrys, Windows Mobile devices, and iPhone. A key feature of these operating systems is that they allow you to install applications, like those available from the Android Market and iPhone Application store.

Smart phones tend to be more expensive and come packed with features like touchscreens, full featured Web browsers, real keyboards, and the ability to synchronize data (like contacts and calendar appointments) with a PC. These devices are great for E-mail addicts and anyone who likes to carry their calendar around in their pocket, but might be overkill if all you want to do is be able to place calls and send the occasional text message.

Cell phones come in three basic body types: clamshell, slider and candy bar.

  • Clamshells, or flip phones, fold closed and make it all but impossible to accidentally dial someone from your pocket or purse. Most also have external screens for checking who is calling without opening the phone.
  • Candy bars put all the controls and the screen on the front of the device. The lack of moving parts makes them a little more robust, and they are often smaller than their clamshell and slider brethren. You'll have to remember to lock them or risk unintentionally dialing friends and family.
  • Sliders, appropriately enough, look like condylar phones but slide open to reveal the keypad, giving them the same advantages as a flip phone.

In the end, however, body type is a personal choice; no style is inherently better than another.

Since the debut of the iPhone, manufacturers have been rushing to put touchscreens in as many handsets as possible. Touchscreens are still primarily found on higher priced devices, but as phones get more complex, a touchscreen becomes a valuable tool for quickly finding your way around menus and browsing the Internet. A Touch Screen Purse is a great way to conveniently have your cell phone safely at your fingertips.
