First Idea For Research Project

January 14, 2009 at 4:42 pm 4 comments

My idea is to research about a the G-Phone (as a Multi Use Phone-computer).

The first step will cover the background history of the technology available before the G-Phone, like the first cell phone-mobile phones the like radio telephone technology from two-way radios in vehicles to handheld cellular phones. During the early 1940s, Motorola developed a backpacked two-way radio, the Walkie-Talkie and later developed a large hand-held two-way radio for the US military. This battery powered “Handie-Talkie” (HT) was about the size of a man’s forearm (Wikipedia).  Then continue researching until I get to the G-Phone.

The second step will be to research the G-phone as it is now (present).  I don’t have a G-phone, but I will love to have one.

The third step will be the future of the G-phone, wich I think that it will end up being a mini computer-phone-projector etc.

Please let me know if I’m in the right path.

Thank you,

    Definitely a good and right track to be on. You may want to inform you history and present day research with why these phones came about. Winston will help you with this and it may give you some ideas for your present and future research. You say you would love to have a g-phone. Why, what about the technology has made you “got a have it.”

    How did the technology evolve and what happened in society that required us to need g-phones. Future speculation should be fun.

    Good luck,

    Hi, Rubi — I think the analog cell phone is your logical historical technology. The digital cell phone would be your current technology. The “G” phone (android?) is your **future** technology — its event horizon is less than 1 year.

    PS — bad UI in this WP design! I clicked the “Logout” button by mistake — it’s too prominent!

    Hi Rubi, I like your topic & your forward-thinking ideas about the future of the G Phone.

    It seems like you have a lot of devices to follow! If you need to narrow it down, you could focus on one kind of phone use: military vs. personal.

    I’m looking forward to your project!

    Nice stated preliminary idea, I am assuming that the key to your paper is to smoothly comnect the past and the present phone industry together, and elaborate how you predict the future of phone industry by a reasonable retrospect into the past and the present.
