A cell phone has become easily accessible
today, as it can fit in most
pockets. (pun intended!) a decent cell-phone will be available
starting Rs. 5000/- and of course, the sky is the limit if you
expensive model. Another thing to note is that cell phone
going down as the market becomes more competitive.
Small is in. At least where the cell phones go. The new tiny
single-chassis phones are called "candy bar" models, a
their shape. Many weigh less than 200 grams, battery included.
familiar squat flip-phones -- those that open like
the old "Star Trek" -- also are ultra-light.
Batteries are getting smaller too. New nickel metal hydride
batteries are smaller and lighter than the Nickel Cadmium
batteries, but often provide about 40 percent less power. The
batteries are the Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) and the Lithium Polymer
batteries, which are of superior quality.
The Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) is
standard performance testing association for cell phones. Like
seal, it too has an approval seal.
