If you asked people 20 years ago what they could do with their phone, they would have simply said, "Call people". Today, a reply would not be that short and easy. The transformations this device has undergone over the last two decades are tremendous. The mobile phone has evolved into a sleek multifuncational marvel. However, the versatile new models are not as good as the old ones when it comes to clear reception. Also, mobile phones' additional functions eat up battery life, so there is less talk time. The author looks at how mobile telephoning has turned into mobile media-based information exchange and the turmoil this transformation has caused.
