HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE CREATOR OF THE CELL PHONE!

evolution of cell phones

Well, not really.  I’m stretching it a little.  Eric Magnus Campbell Tigerstedt was born on August 4, 1887 (and died on April 20, 1925) in Finland, and is known as that country’s version of Thomas Edison.  He innovated a whole bunch of things–notably, sound-in-movies, but he was also the first person to file a patent for a cell phone.  Specifically, the patent was for a “pocket-size folding telephone with a very thin carbon microphone.”

Way to go, dude!
