The mobile phone - basic facts

The mobile phone is an electronic device deployed for mobile telephony and data transmission over a cellular network of specialised base stations also called cell sites. Mobile phones are different from cordless phones which simply offer a telephony service. Handphones have become the most effective means of distant interaction. Along with the standard voice function, current handphones may support many additional mobile services and accessories, such as SMS for text messaging, e-mail, access to the Web, phone gaming, Bluetooth, camera with video recorder and MMS option for sending and receiving photos and video, MP3 player, radio and GPS. Handphones are deployed for a scope of purposes, such as to keep in contact with family members, manage a business and have access to a phone in an emergency. Some people have two or more mobile phones: one is deployed for business and another for personal use. Multiple handphones and multiple SIM cards are also generally used to derive benefit from different calling options. For instance, one plan could come with cheap local telephone calls, another can be for low-cost long-distance, and yet another for cheap international telephone calls or cheap roaming. Mobile phones vary from basic phones to upgraded phones, including cameraphones and musicphones. There are also smartphones that function as small-sized portable computers. The world's largest individual mobile operator is China Mobile with over 500 mln handphone clients. The world's largest mobile operator group by clients is Vodafone having its headquarters in the UK. There are over 600 mobile operators and providers worldwide. Over 50 mobile operators have over 10 mln customers each, and over 150 mobile operators have leastways one million subscribers by the end of 2008. The leading mobile phone brands are Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Apple iPhone, Blackberry, LG, Samsung etc. Because of the quickly growing competition on the telecom market, clients can choose from a full scope of tariff options to meet their budget and purposes. Contract handphone deals and Pay-as-you-go are well-known networking options which provide cost effective tariff plans.
