On 9th January, 2007, Apple introduced the iPhone to the public for the first time, hailing the era of the Smartphone. Mobile phones have been around for much longer than one would expect. According to Wikipedia, the first phone call made from a car phone was in 1946! However, it wasn’t until 1973 that the first handheld mobile phone was tested. Furthermore, it wasn’t until the mid-1990s when mobile phones that we are familiar with came on the scene and have quickly improved over the last 20 years. We are currently entering the era of 4G mobile phones in Ireland. As many primary school children own mobile phones, it might be an interesting topic to do with them.
