History of the Mobile Phone

2008-12-15


The history of mobile phones traces the development of handheld radio telephone technology from two-way radios appended to vehicles and handheld cellular telephones.

Two-way radios started to be in use in motor vehicles like taxicabs, police cruisers, ambulances, and the like. They were not yet classified as mobile phones since they were not yet connected to the telephone network. That being said, it was not possible to dial phone numbers from two-way radios. Later, a growing community of mobile radio users, who were known as the mobileers, popularized the technology that would eventually lead to the early mobile phone.

The first mobile phones were permanently installed in vehicles, but the versions that followed such as the so-called transportables or "bag phones" were equipped with a cigarette lighter plug so that they could also be carried, and thus could be used as either mobile or as portable two-way radios. In the early 1940s, Motorola has designed a backpacked two-way radio, the Walkie-Talkie and later developed a large hand-held two-way radio for the use of the US military. This battery powered "Handie-Talkie" (HT) was as big as a man's forearm.
