FC: Short History of Phones
1: Alexander Graham Bell - Maker of the telephone What is a Telephone? A telephone, or phone, is a device that transmit sound or voice into signals that can be transmitted through the air or wired cables. What are the components of a phone? A phone is made up of a transmitter, microphone, and a receiver, earphone. Wired telephone had a cable for the sound to be transmitted through but now-a-days we can transmit sound wireless
3: Early on, phones took a shape for easier communication between people, much different than Grahams original phone. They had a rotary dial which dialed the numbers to call a certain phone number, obviously. This step began modern communication between people. The difference between the phone to the left and the one to the right is, one, age, and two, the microphone and the earphone are together. On the phone to the left they are separated. This also helped evolve phones and was quite logical, actually.
4: People slowly started being able to wirelessly communicate. This meant that they had wireless phones They also started having a screen to display the number, but later on that become much more important.
6: Finally, after much shrinkage of portable, or wireless, phones came the cell phone. It communicated with the satellite instantly and you could talk to anywhere in the world as long as you had coverage. What is coverage? Coverage is the areas that you can cell phone reception from the satellite. In other words, where the satellite can reach your phone. Cell phone developers, the people the promote, make, and sell phones, wanted you to use your phone for more than just calls. So here came the text message, or the SMS. It allowed people to talk through writing by typing on the keyboard, like writing an instant email. Also much faster than email.
8: Cell phone developers were very greedy people. Let me just put that out there. After they made the SMS they wanted more, so guess what they did? They decided to put Internet on phones and make you pay for it. Internet on your phone let you access the Internet from anywhere at any time. Then after that they made phones that had games and applications that allowed you to use things and gave you tools. they called them apps. Don't think that they stopped there though. They not only had phones with apps and Internet, but they made touch screen phones. you could touch the screen and it was as if you clicked on the screen, like you would with a mouse.
10: Meet iPhone. Apples baby. The simplicity of this phone had billions around the world wanting and wishing for one. Just the sheer speed and looks of one were enough to make you spend your money, like 200$, on one. You could do just about anything on an iPhone, calls were just a small part of them. Next came iPad which is the bigger version of iPhone.
12: So from 1876 to 2013 we have gone from a mere communication device to a portable computer, almost. Imagine the future.
13: Phones of the Future?
