Has It Really Been 45 Years?


I was on the Motorola website earlier today looking for some help with my Motorola mobile phone. I stumbled across this article on their site.

I simply cannot believe that it is 45 years since the first mobile phone was introduced by Motorola in 1973!

I had the two of types of Motorola pictured above and at one point had a Motorola car phone as well. These were very good pieces of kit in the early 1990’s. Fast forwards to the mid 2000’s when I owned two mobile phone businesses I sold a lot of the RAZR mobile phone. One Christmas (2005, from memory) I simply could not enough of the RAZR pink. I must have sold 200 units of that particular device in he fortnight running up to that Christmas!

Personally I moved to Nokia with Symbian and then to Android devices with a brief dalliance with Apple (Lets not go there!)

And we go full circle. I have one of the new G series with Android and I swear by it in much the same way as I relied on the phone on the left in the picture above in 1992! I am pleased with this latest Motorola.

In the times since 1991 I have owned more than 30  mobile phones. The Motorola’s are up there with the best in class, so let me close this blog by saying Happy 45th birthday Motorola!

The Mobile Phone Industry


In 2004 I bought a small mobile phone business which was very succesful and which I sold 2 years later. I then subsequently bought 3 more mobile phone businesses! Last week my private office disposed of my last remaining asset in the industry – a well performing mobile phone price comparison website. This is due to streamlining my business interests. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the industry for accommodating me over the past 11 years. It has been hard work but also it has been fun, rewarding and profitable. I do feel a twinge of regret about leaving the industry but take with me fond memories of the good times and even the not so good times!

The best deals on the iPhone6 and iPhone 6 Plus should be available on my website on either 22 September 2014 or 23 September 2014. I have owned The Mobile Fone Network for seven years. The website is here.The iPhone 6 Plus is the first big screen smartphone from Apple with a stunning 5.5-inch HD Retina display. The large screen delivers impressive graphics and detail taking mobile gaming and entertainment to a new level. The phone has a stunning design of metal and glass that elegantly curves to make it a joy to hold. The phone has been built with a 64-bit desktop class so you get an amazing user experience and the new A8 chip and M8 coprocessor make it very efficient.

The new iOS 8 is on board and has been enhanced to work with the larger screen and with Siri, FaceTime and more apps on board you get the best Apple innovations in one handset. 4G, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and NFC are on board and the Touch ID has been improved so you not only unlock the phone with fingerprint recognition but you can complete purchases securely too.”
