The cell phone is a wireless cell technology that is most widely used by the people in the modern world. Michael Faraday was the first person who studied cell phone technology in 1843. His research made him understand the fact that space could carry electricity. This understanding led him to the development of the cell phone. In 1865 Mahlon Loomis was the first person to use wireless technology. He used the atmosphere as a conductor for communicating messages to different places. The first cell phone, however, was made in 1977 in Chicago. Initially, the cell phones were bigger in size since the manufacturers did not know how to make them compact. Since 1988 different companies have been set up for manufacturing cell phones. With every passing year, there has been advancement in the technology that has greatly benefited the users (History of Cell Phones, n.d. http://library.thinkquest.org/04oct/00047/historycell.htm).
Ever since cell phones have been manufactured there has been advancement in technology with every passing year. Initially, mobile phones were huge in size and were called “car phones” because their basic use was in cars.
