The World’s first Android phone

Mobile phones have made considerable progress since Innocenzo Manzetti played around with the possibility of a "speaking telegraph" in 1844. Advancement of the landline phone came by a wide margin however it is the cell phone that genuinely caught the attention of the world.

The first mobile phones were produced by Bell System for use in cars only, introduced in 1946 on their Mobile Telephone Service in St. Louis, Missouri. The first call on a handheld mobile phone was made on April, 3 1973 by Motorola’s Martin Cooper to his opponent, Joel S. Engel of Bell Labs. Nicknamed "the brick" the principal cell phones measured 2 lb (0,9kg) and cost $3,995.

Similarly as with most innovations, it takes a while (and a ton of teething issues) before an item achieves a satisfactory cost figure for both the maker and the buyer. Early portable systems were inconsistent and telephones were costly, cumbersome and not very alluring.

At the point when the 1G network arrived in 1983, the telephones were still too huge for solace and experienced short battery life. When 2G was introduced, in 1991, the phones were better and the first smartphones were introduced. But it was only after 2001, when 3G network was launched, that the cell phone market truly took off. Networks were faster and phones were smaller and more affordable. The entry-level Nokia 1100, launched in 2003,  was gobbled up 1 million times each week to in the end turn into the world's most famous mobile phone with more than 200 million units sold. By 2011, Apple had sold more than 100 million iphones.

Presenting Android – a savvy move

Android, Inc. was established in October 2003 by Andy Rubin, Rich Miner, Nick Sears and Chris White. Google bought it in 2005 and the Linux-based Android operating system was unveiled in 2007. The rest – as the Google history itself – is an amazing bit of history. Individuals adored Android.
