The History of Cell Phones


The History of Cell Phones

Logo for The History of Cell Phones
This article describes how the invention of the electromagnetic telegraph by Samuel Morse is related to what we now designate as the information superhighway. The history of sending electronic messages is traced from 1832 to the present day cell phone and its derivatives. The question is asked and answered, how did we get from Samuel Morse to where we are today…and where are we going tomorrow.
