Mobile Phone Technology
2016 was crossover year where over 50% of Internet traffic was driven by
mobiles rather than laptops or desktops. The (smart)phone in your pocket
is a very powerfull computer with fact connectivity.
The first mobile appeared in 1990 with the aim of providing mobile phone calls.
Since then SMS messages were added as a secondary communication medium. The Internet
was added in 2001 with the advent of WAP technology. Since then the phones and
communications have developed to the modern ubiquitous smartphones of today.
