History of the Mobile Phone

Busy lifestyles call for a digital assistant that can keep up with you: enter the mobile phone as we know it. Ready to rock your day? Don’t forget to check your phone first! Our phones may allow us to connect with the people that matter most to us, but they do so much more now. Keeping track of appointments and world news has become truly effortless. Yet the origins of the modern day phone are far from being this flexible or even useful, but very much still ground-breaking and revolutionary. Indeed, these rudimentary versions set the stage for what we use and enjoy to this day. The use of mobile technology has skyrocketed over the last ten years, opening the door for more than just mere communication. A large percentage of online sales are conducted by mobile phone instead of being done at the desk. If you want to order a taxi, you may turn to an app faster than the classic telephone directory. We’ve come a long way since 1876, and that’s always a good thing.

The timeline below presents the history of the telephone in a clear, easy-to-understand format.
