The first-class passengers on the Deutsche Reichsbahn connecting Berlin and Hamburg were offered the service of the first successful mobile telephony. In the year 1946, in Chicago, the first-ever calls were made on a car radiotelephone. However, the service abruptly reached its capacity due to the availability of a limited number of radio frequencies. Again, in 1956, the first fully automated mobile phone system was launched in Sweden, only for private vehicles.
The device used vacuum tube technology to be installed in the vehicles having a rotary dial system. But it was as heavy as 40kg. With time the first modern-time mobile phone was developed by Martin Cooper. It was named the Motorola Dyna TAC and weighed as less as 2.5pounds. Since then, we have been concentrating on even sleeker and light-weighted cell phones. Today we are attracted to mobiles or better to say smart phones that are ever decreasing in size. We race for mobiles that can the best performance out of components in sleek objects. A mobile phone, from high-end models available 5 years ago with the same feature could today, be easily twice as compact and just as light.
