Smartphones are the most commonly used type of mobile phone today. These phones feature a touchscreen and most can do almost anything a computer can such as listening to online radio stations.

It wasn't long ago, however, that the smartphones of today were still in the realm of science fiction. The telephone itself was invented in the late 1800s. The first patent was given to Alexander Graham Bell in 1876.

The telephones of yesteryear looked much different than those of today. The first telephones housed auditory devices inside wooden boxes. The signal was carried via wires.

During the 1900s, models were developed that had a handset and a rotary dial - you had to turn the dial to the correct numbers.

The first mobile phone call was made in 1973, on a cellular telephone that has often been described as a "brick." Early in the twenty-first century, flip phones with keypads were common.
