The history history of mobile phones charts improvements to communication devices which connect wirelessly to the public switched telephone network. The transmission of speech by radio has a long and varied history going back to Reginald Fessenden's invention and shore-to-ship demonstration of radio telephony.
Before the devices that are now referred to as a mobile phone existed, there were some precursors. The development of mobile telephony began in 1918 with tests of wireless telephony on military trains between Berlin and Zossen. In 1924, public trials started with telephone connection on trains between Berlin and Hamburg. In 1925, the company Zugtelephonie A. G. was founded to supply train telephony equipment and in 1926 telephone service in trains of the Deutsche Reichsbahn and the German mail service on the route between Hamburg and Berlin was approved  and offered to 1st class travelers.
In 1926 the artist Karl Arnold created a visionary cartoon about the use of mobile phones in the street, in the picture „wireless telephony", published in the German satirical magazine Simplicissimus.
The portrayal of a utopia of mobile phone in literature dates back to the year 1931. It is found in Erich Kästner's children's book The 35th of May, or Conrad's Ride to the South Seas:
“ A gentleman who rode along the sidewalk in front of them, suddenly stepped off the conveyor belt, pulled a phone from his coat pocket, spoke a number into it and shouted: "Gertrude, listen, I'll be an hour late for lunch because I want to go to the laboratory. Goodbye, sweetheart!" Then he put his pocket phone away again, stepped back on the conveyor belt, started reading a book... ”
The Second World War made military use of radio telephony links. Hand-held radio transceivers have been available since the 1940s. Mobile telephones for automobiles became available from some telephone companies in the 1940s. Early devices were bulky and consumed high power and the network supported only a few simultaneous conversations. Modern cellular networks allow automatic and pervasive use of mobile phones for voice and data communications.
In the United States, engineers from Bell Labs began work on a system to allow mobile users to place and receive telephone calls from automobiles, leading to the inauguration of mobile service on 17 June 1946 in St. Louis, Missouri. Shortly after, AT&T offered Mobile Telephone Service. A wide range of mostly incompatible mobile telephone services offered limited coverage area and only a few available channels in urban areas. The introduction of cellular technology, which allowed re-use of frequencies many times in small adjacent areas covered by relatively low powered transmitters, made widespread adoption of mobile telephones economically feasible.
In the USSR, Leonid Kupriyanovich, engineer from Moscow, in 1957-1961 developed and presented a number of experimental models of handheld mobile phone. The weight of a latest model, presented in 1961, was only 70 g and it freely took place on a palm. However in the USSR the decision at first to develop the system of automobile "Altai" phone was made ("Nauka i zhizn" magazine, 8, 1957 and 10, 1958, "Technika-molodezhi" magazine, 2, 1959, "Za rulem" magazine, 12, 1957, "Yuny technik" magazine, 7, 1957, 2, 1958 and 9, 1996, "Orlovskaya pravda" newspaper, 12, 1961).
In 1965, Bulgarian company "Radioelektronika" presented on Inforga-65 interrnational exhibition in Moscow the mobile automatic phone combined with a base station. Solutions of this phone based on the system, developed by Leonid Kupriyanovich. One base station, connected to one telephone wire line, could serve up to 15 customer. ("Nauka i zhizn" magazine, 8, 1965).
The advances in mobile telephony can be traced in successive generations from the early "0G" services like MTS and its successor Improved Mobile Telephone Service, to first generation (1G) analog cellular network, second generation (2G) digital cellular networks, third generation (3G) broadband data services to the current state of the art, fourth generation (4G) native-IP networks.
Motorola was the first company to produce a handheld mobile phone. On 3 April 1973 Martin Cooper, a Motorola engineer and executive, made the first mobile telephone call from handheld subscriber equipment in front of reporters, placing a call to Dr. Joel S. Engel of Bell Labs. The prototype handheld phone used by Dr. Martin Cooper weighed 1.1 kg and measured 23 cm long, 13 cm deep and 4.45 cm wide. The prototype offered a talk time of just 30 minutes and took 10 hours to re-charge. Cooper has stated his vision for the handheld device was inspired by Captain James T. Kirk using his Communicator on the television show Star Trek.
John F. Mitchell, Motorola's chief of portable communication products and Martin Cooper's boss in 1973, played a key role in advancing the development of handheld mobile telephone equipment. Mitchell successfully pushed Motorola to develop wireless communication products that would be small enough to use anywhere and participated in the design of the cellular phone.
For iPhone, the battery usage is quite stable regardless how many apps you have. For Android, if you install few apps like whatsapp, games, and etc. Battery dropping like water fall. No Android is no apps OS.

The milliamp bump would give you an extra minute of videos and music. That's all. Ridiculous incremental improvement. Iphone 5s...5 "same".

I believe the new 1550 means it will be the same as S4 battery endurance.
bigger batteries, but only up to 1550 mAH? still means your gonna be charging it every 5 to 7 hours. apple needs to take a cue from the other manufacturers. look at the size of the s4mini and the moto razr m/razr i. both phones the same size as the iphone 5, but with bigger batteries. it can be done apple...you just need to realise it! or are profit margins more important to you than customer satisfaction?
now lets react the same way applefans reacted ln 64bit.
Samsung had bigger mAh batteries before Apple and now Apple copies them by making bigger battery!! copy apple!

that drawing with pen feature is most productive and popular feature in whole smartphone industry! someone has to be an iDiot to insult such feature. i was stunned when dumb (technologically challenged) friends who don't know what android is, use S-pen like they were born with it and swear that they wouldn't buy mobile without it. please don't comment if you don't understand value of something.
AdamBoy64, 13 Sep 2013In what area does it need to catch up?For me in Battery and NFC
AnonD-118013, 13 Sep 2013No. samsung needs many years to catch up to iphone.In what area does it need to catch up?
Some of the people here give comments as if they are experts. You cannot just simply say iOS or the iphone is behind by other OS or phones solely on reasons that it does not provide features like what others have provided. Buy and use iphone and know the difference.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2013Apple needs another 2 years to catch up with Galaxy S4 No. samsung needs many years to catch up to iphone.
yeah, 12 Sep 2013exactly my point. imagine a bigger screen on an iphone, which obviously mean a bigger battery.... moreprice is too high compititor samsung is much batter than iphone and facility is also good android is much bater than ios so
my Sony ericsson k530i has 1000mah on it and dats even not enought withat device for me. wher wil iphone 5s cater my needs with all the high end spec's n a touch screen and all the biggie show off. thing with 1570mah
