Advanced features of cell phones that make each phone more than a phone
Since Alexander Graham Bell discovered the technology behind the use of a telephone, the telecommunication field is growing in a fast pace. Having mastered most of the technologies on the use of telephone and communication, still the world is on the search of more advanced technologies.
The history tells us that the fax machine used telephone lines to transmit digital signals to a modem on the receiving end. It was the modem on the other side that converted signals into messages. As time passed, the fax machines were replaced by telephonic instruments. Hope you all remember that big old telephonic instruments. Now we can see these instruments on the front room of houses as a decorative antique piece. After some time we can see these instruments on museums. Then came the small and smart home phones. Many telecommunication companies like Home phone Service is giving cutting edge technology integrated home phone service to their customers. As home phone can be used only within the home, man invented mobile or cell phone.
Cell phones came into existence in the beginning of 1980. Today million of people are using cell phone all around the world. Cell phone network is connected to a computer controlled center and transmission tower to transmit messages. In the introductory stage, there were only few transmission towers. This gave rise to issues related to clear transmission of the messages. Now most of the telecommunication companies have mobile towers in almost all areas where they are providing the service. As the use of cell phone is increasing day by day, more and more new technologies and applications are integrated to the cell phones that became small enough to fit in the palm of a hand.
What are the advanced features of latest cell phones?
Built-in Camera - Today most of the cell phone available in the market have built-in camera. This allows you to take picture through your handset and save them. The pictures that you taken with your handset can be send to friends or relatives and export to a PC. The standard resolution of built-in camera is 1.3 megapixels. This will change according to the model. Most of the high end models will have a good lens, high resolution and a small sensor. Some cameras will have built-in flash system and have the ability to take self-portraits by looking at yourself on the external screen. Most of the cell phones sold today, even that is cheap, will have a built-in camera. Main advantage of this feature is that we can use camera where ever we are. For example, if we are travelling in a bus, and we saw any nice flower or rare incidents, then we just have to click the cell phone camera to capture the picture. Even we can send the same to our friends without any delay. As carrying camera wherever we go is not practical, cell phone camera can be a good companion.
Cell phone MP3 –player – Another exciting feature of cell phone is MP3 player. This is the common format used for electronic audio contents like music and ringtones. The clarity of the music players depends on the model, as different players will have different MP3 capabilities. Most of the advanced models allow you to download and play music from your cell phone or from the computer. Some cell phone models even give an option to compose music by yourself and make it as a ringtone. The basic cell phone allows storing an average of 10 songs at a time.
Cell phone FM radio- Some cell phones available in the market is equipped with FM radio. You can select radio stations according to your wish or pre-program a number of stations as you do in your car radio.
The telecommunication system has come a long way. From Graham Bell’s telephone system to Nokia’s blackberry and VoIP communication. Still we have a long way to go.
