Mobile phones have become indispensable and now play a big part in
everyone's lives. With the current technology that has made people and
nations closer, mobile and handheld devices can truly be considered great
inventions and innovations. Gone are the days when one has to go home
first before he can use the telephone or go to a public phone booth to
place an all-important call to a loved one or business contact. With the
presence of mobile phones, everyone has now gone wireless. Communication
has, indeed, turned very easy for all.

Mobile phone, as it name suggests, provides mobility. It is portable
communication device. One can bring it anywhere. It is made possible by
satellites that transmit signals for the phone to send and receive. It is
very convenient as one can use it anywhere irregardless of time and
region.

People everywhere have seen the evolution of communication technology.
From a phone that uses wires to one that no longer requires any. From the
analog to the wireless. In some places, wireless phones were provided
with signals by the network company. In other places, a simulated card in
inserted in the phone to grab and receive signals and send as well. These
phones use the concept of signal transmission and radio wave theories
that enables a two-way communication with real time and clearer
conversation.

From the analog mobile phones that only allowed calling and voice
conversation evolved the mobile phones that have text messaging features.
It is another emergence in the world of mobile technology. A person may
send a text message that will be received by another party. This message
is sent through a signal passing to a gateway which transmits it to the
receiving party.

In the turn of the 20th century, mobile phones have become more of a
trend and companies have started to make them appear more sophisticated.
Mobile phones started with big sizes which transformed to smaller ones
and then became bigger again. It has developed much like how computers
have. Nowadays, mobile phones are not just for communication. Originally,
it had the voice call function but since the technology is growing day by
day, the mobile technology grows along with it. Mobile phones now have
been created with different functions and usage which are beyond plain
communication usage. These functions are constantly updated and
additional features are created each day.

Mobile phones also serve as mp3 players and/or audio, video file storage
units where users may save audio files and listen to the music. Mobile
phones now are also equipped with cameras that come in different pixels
allowing people to take pictures anywhere and anytime. Almost all mobile
phones of these times are designed with games, calculator, organizer,
alarm clock, dictionary and many more. These are just now considered the
basics. Some updated mobile phones may now take video clips and still
photographs of which may be transferred to the computer for different
purposes. Many mobile phones are also designed with   touch screen
features where a person doesn’t need to touch the keypad anymore. The
screen of the phone is designed to recognize commands as the finger tip
touches the screen.

Moreover, mobile phones are now used as computers. With the General
Packet Radio Service (GPRS), surfing the internet is now made possible.
GPRS is used to transmit IP packets which enable users to use the
internet wherever they go. People also use their mobile phones in banking
transactions where they can send and receive money through phone.

Several high technology features are continuously being researched and
applied to mobile phones. Not long ago when 3G system was developed. It
enables users of the same networks call each other with real time camera.
Through this system, one can actually see the person he is calling while
talking to him. Long before people finally get familiar with the just
launched 3G system, many companies are now researching on the higher
system which is the fourth generation or 4G system. Researchers project
the new system as faster with a connection speed reaching 100 Mb per
second. This is seen to provide a better quality of call.

Mobile phones are not only for personal use like it was in the past. With
mobile phones, reporters and journalists may now take and film news
reports. Security system and surveillance are also possible.

It is seen in the near future that mobile phones are most likely to
replace laptops. With the new mobile phones coming out of the market,
viewing and working on documents only found in computers are now
possible. It is also seen to replace entertainment devices with all the
entertainment features new mobile phones have.

Mobile phones do not only play a big part in technology. Mobile phones
also show fashion and style. Thus, to make these phones more appealing
and attractive, manufacturers produce these phones in different colors,
size, shape, and style.

Mobile phones are indeed one of the greatest contributions of technology.
It has gone far beyond what man can imagine. Now, with the emergence of
mobile technology, everyone just can’t live without one.
