Mobile Phones I am going to discuss: The five main uses of mobile phones The development of mobile phones The future of mobile phones
Development of Mobile Phones The origin of the mobile phone goes back to 1908 when a US Patent was issued in Kentucky for a wireless telephone. The very first mobile phones were used as two-way radios that allowed people like taxi drivers and the emergency services to communicate. Motorola was the first company to produce a handheld mobile phone in April 1973 the first ever call on a handheld mobile phone was made. in the mid-eighties, the First Generation (1G) fully automatic cellular networks were introduced. The first text message was sent in 1992 Then phones started developing by adding cameras, internet access and apps.
Calls Making calls on mobile phones have been around for 42 years 40% of smartphone users say they could manage without call function on their device The average person uses their mobile for an hour and 52 minutes a day Survey says around 20 minutes of this is spent making three phone calls Most people text or use instant messenger to communicate.
Texting Texting has only been around for 23 years In the graph it shows that nearly 80% of people use texting in 2012 Nearly 80% of adults in the UK text every day Most people text rather than calls because it is a lot easier and faster.
Social networking Social networking is a very big and used part of mobiles. In 2014 57% of adults used their mobile phones for internet access. The Apple App Store launched in July 2008 25 billion apps get downloaded each month. People use apps to communicate, share images, play games, email, social networking.
camera The early phones didn’t have a camera on the back and even the front. The first cell phone with a built-in camera was manufactured by Samsung and released in South Korea in June of 2000. the built-in digital camera was capable of taking 20 photos at 350,000-pixel resolution, which is 0.35-megapixels, Now phones can have up to 41 megapixels Front cameras have been added so that people can take selfies and for use of Skype and facetime.
GPS GPS helps people to find directions to places and help them if they are lost. Now that it has been added to phones it has saved people from using and buying sat-navs. People can also share there location so other people can find them.
Legal, social and ethnical issues Legal People can hack into mobile phones to collect information and track them. Cold callers can constantly phone people to sell insurance, products etc. This can be very annoying. Social People have become more unsociable because people are spending more time on the phone rather than having conversations with people. Ethnical Some people use mobile phones while driving which distracts them from the road and can cause accidents and even deaths.
