Most Popular Cell Phone Brands Ever 1977 – 2020

Most Popular Cell Phone Brands Ever 1977 – 2020

Best Selling Cell Phone Brands 1978 – 2020

I remade this video because it didn’t have enough info and I wanted to research the start of the cell phone era.

Cell phone technology was introduced to the US in 1976 by OKI Electric, a Japanese company. They were in a race with Motorola to finalize and unveil the technology. Although they won the race, Motorola managed to set up the first test markets in Chicago and Washington DC. These are the brands that produced cell phones from the beginning until now. Researching all this information took me days. It entailed going through old industry data and company financial reports, hopefully you’ll enjoy it.

1G networks could handle 100k callers vs 20 callers on radiotelephone networks.

One of the First portable cellphones was the Mobira Senator (Nokia) which weighed 22 lb.

Japanese and European cellphones dominated the 80s because of higher quality while American phones had 5x the defects.

    So no one’s gonna appreciate the fact that we have sold 18 billion mobile phones and yet many are still struggling to get food and clean water in Africa? Not to mention the amount of waste generated. Show us how amazing our capitalism world is.

    berbeda. Larutan A mengandung 5 g senyawa Z yang dilarutkan dalam 100 g air.
    Sedangkan larutan B mengandung 2,31 g senyawa Z yang dilarutkan dalam 100 g
    benzen. Larutan A mempunyai tekanan uap 754,5 mmHg pada titik didih air normal
    dan larutan B mempunyai tekanan uap yang sama pada titik didih normal benzen.
