- The evolution of the cell phone is a pretty incredible thing and it has been distrupted in the last decade more then what was even foreseeable. It is crazy to think of where the cell phone came from and where it is now and it isn’t even imaginable what it will be like in the near future. At first the first cell phone was in 1973 where it could be installed into cars and other vehicles. The phone was designed and made by Martin Cooper who worked for Motorola. It was bulky and weighed 1.1 kg and was 23 cm long. It only had 30 minutes to talk and then would have to be recharged for the next 10 hours. These cell phones went for about 4 grand each. In the early stages of the phones Nokia and Motorola came out with many different devices and different technique and styles. They were competitors and were at the top of the industry for cell phones during the late 90s and early two thousands. For instance the Nokia 6110 was a basic phone that had the standard game of snack, had a calculator, and you were able to make phone calls. They made many different makes and models that consisted of flip phones non flip phones etc. It wasn’t until later in the 2000s there was a period of immense trial and error with cell phones. Many different companies came out with different types of cell phones like the en-v, the dare, the voyager, the versa, the razor. These were all types of phones that many people had and the blackberry was even becoming more popular.
The blackberry was one of the first smart phones and even was popular when the first iPhone came out in 2007. However, it evidently died down a couple years afterwards when the iPhones and android devices became the main cell phone everyone had. It seemed like a trend that was seen in cell phones up until 2012 was cell phones keep getting more and more smaller so they were easier to carry etc. However, now in 2015, the latest iPhone 6s plus is huge consisting of 6.23” H x 3.07” L x .29” W. when it was originally 2 inches smaller then that to begin with. If you click here you will see a powerpoint that shows the iPhones various sizes.
