THIS MAKES HIM 81 YEARS OLD. AND YES HE IS STILL LIVING TODAY.
Hexagonal cell is a cell tower which transmits signals. And you would have to stay within those hexagonal cell to make a phone call.
Although now a days the definition of hand sized is a lot small.
History of the cell phone
HISTORY OF THE CELL PHONE<br />LANDON DOWLATSINGH<br />
WHO INVENTED THE CELL PHONE?<br />The person responsible for inventing the cell phone is Doctor Martin Cooper. <br />He invented the technology for the cell phone when he was the Director of Research and Development at Motorola<br />
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON MARTIN COOPER<br />BORN: DECEMBER 26, 1928 IN CHICAGO ILLINOIS, USA.<br />Cooper is the CEO and found of Arraycoom.<br />Arraycoom is a wireless communications software company. <br />ArrayCoom, works on researching smart antenna technology and improving wireless networks. <br />
HOW DID THE CELL PHONE BECOME A “CELL” PHONE?<br />It started of with engineers, in the late 40’s, proposing ideas to use hexagonal cells for mobile phones in vehicles. <br />The only problem was at this stage technology to implement the ideas did not exist. <br />
IT’S A RACE FOR WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS<br />Their was two companies that were trying to develop a better way to communicate, AT&T and Motorola. While AT&T was stuck around the idea about having a cell phone in a car, Martin Cooper was thinking of ways to communicate wirelessly, which was un-heard of. <br />
FIRST CELL PHONE<br />In 1973 Martin Cooper out beat AT&T and was successful with his first ever mobile phone.<br />The first cell phone released by Motorola was the DynaTec phone. <br />DynaTec phone was considered to be the first generation of Cell Phones. <br />
QUICK FACTS ABOUT THE FIRST CELL PHONE<br />The first DynaTec phone weighted about<br /> 5 pounds<br />DynaTec phone toke batteries <br />The battery life would last for 20 minutes long<br />Nicknamed the BRICK<br />It cost 4,000 US dollars to own a cell phone<br />
WHY WAS THE CELL PHONE INVENTED?<br />AT&T announced to the world that they were the only ones capable of created a “cell” phone. Their idea of a cell phone was one that connects to your car. <br />Martin Cooper laughed at the idea, that why would you want to be trapped in a car talking to a phone. <br />He wanted people to have freedom to talk where ever they wanted to.<br />
ARE CELL PHONES CHANGING THE WORLD?<br />Cell phones had quickly become popular, and in demand! <br />When something is in demand inventers always thinks of ways to make a product better suited for what its intended. <br />The cell phone at the time was only intended to communicate with other people wirelessly. <br />Over time inventers created other features for the cell phone<br />
HOW THE CELL PHONES EVOLVED<br />1992<br />Motorola International 3200<br />The first digital hand-size mobile telephone.<br />Nokia 1011<br />This was the first mass-produced GSM phone. It was produced until 1994.<br />
CELL PHONES THROUGH TIME<br />1996<br />Motorola StarTAC<br />The first clamshell (flip phone) cellular phone. Also one of the first display screens featured on a cell.<br />Nokia 9000 Communicator<br />The first smartphone series, driven by an Intel 386 CPU.<br />
CELL PHONES THROUGH TIME<br />1999<br />Samsung SPH-M100 Uproar<br />The Uproar was the first cell phone to have MP3 music capabilities.<br />Ericsson T39<br />This tiny handset was the first Bluetooth-capable phone.<br />
CELL PHONES THROUGH TIME<br />2003<br />BlackBerry 7210<br />BlackBerry’s first color screen.<br />2007<br />iPhone<br />The original iPhone was released in June <br />
CELL PHONES THROUGH TIME<br />Lets stop here for a moment! Is it necessary<br />to actually have all these features <br />on a cell phone?<br />Lets take a look to what features this next <br />Phone has <br />
CELL PHONES THROUGH TIME<br />2010 <br />iPhone 4<br />Internet<br />Ipod<br />Camera<br />Air print<br />Voice control <br />Messages<br />Gps<br />Maps<br />Face 2 Face talking<br />Key board<br />Play movies in HD<br />OVER 10,000 MORE FEATURES<br />Lets not forget you can make phone calls.<br />
FINAL THOUGHTS<br />Its not necessary to have over 10,000<br />features on your phone but people enjoy the<br />new technology, so that’s why inventers will <br />keep making new things to “better improve”<br />the future.<br />The only question that’s left to ask is what's<br />Next?<br />
