Communication is one of the most important bases in a civilized society in which people relate to and use the verbal language to impress others. Verbal communication is richer even than those forged through paper or by lines on a screen and is a great tool for communication.
In 1857, Antonio Meucci invented the telephone, although the first to file the patent was Alexander Graham Bell in 1876: with it was the death of telegram, changing the world with regard to the transmission of information and relationship between people, producing a two-way communication in real time where the voice would be the undisputed star.
The first mobile phone was first marketed in 1984; 11 years after Martin Cooper and John F. Mitchell made a first demonstration: the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X was the first of its kind to offer a complete and more comfortable mobility, beyond phones that were installed in cars. The film “Wall Street” starring Michael Douglas shows the future in wireless communications from anywhere, at any time.
But it was not until late last 90s that the cell phone would begin to become popular worldwide, taking the path to establishing itself as an essential tool of communication, to meet the needs of the individual in an instant and for a certain purpose.
The birth of the mobile would be the next invention of great importance for societies organized on 5 continents, which would mean a complete freedom to communicate in any area with sufficient wireless network coverage: in places where the copper telephone cable did not come, the cell would use the advantages of wireless digital networks to connect with people.
The adoption of mobile by the company changed the way people communicate, so much so that privacy was favored by the absence of a cable and a physical place from which to speak by phone: the phone of living would be obsolete, and any individual who would like to communicate could do it from anywhere in a house, every corner of a city … can escape the hustle and bustle in search of a quiet place from which to start a conversation.
The phone provides freedom of movement, privacy in communications, personal security and it has become an instrument of aid, and is today a tool through which we can stay connected to the world.
The modern mobile phone or Smartphone is today the information, entertainment, and most important communication centre, a Swiss Army knife that is used to play with, receive information, oriented in a city, communicate in real time (WhatsApp, BBM, Hangouts), weaving personal and professional connections (Facebook, LinkedIn), or finding entertainment in music, photography, and video.
Mobile, being a receiver of valuable amounts of information has also been responsible for changes in the habits of individuals and professionals, improving productivity at work, making us more localizable, and becoming the vital instrument that accompanies our long days.
Hence, a mobile phone in today’s day and age is, without a doubt, an indispensable object.
