The phone has revolutionized the way the world works, bringing everything you might need to a call or message, but how did this adventure begin? Who created the first device that looked a bit like a mobile phone, as we know it, and how did it evolve? Here is some information on the history of the phone.
Most people have a phone and can't live without it, but they haven't been on the market for a long time. For example, consumer mobile telephony has a history of no more than 20 years. However, the basics laid by the landline or wired phone are much longer, so if you are interested in such information, we invite you to read on.
The invention of the telephone – the first signs
The first mention of the telephone dates back to 1796, when Gottfried Huth created a telecommunications system that was to take the place of the telegraph, which consisted of signal towers where operators were shouting at each other through megaphones. Other devices called telephones appeared in the following years, one of them being the 1960 Reis telephone, invented by Johan Philip Reis.
