The Mobile Phone Directory - phone specifications, glossary of terms, and telecom news

The Mobile Phone Directory is a free resource intended to appeal to everyone interested in mobile phone communications, providing information about all aspects of mobile telecommunications from the history of the mobile phone through to today's technological gadgets. So, whether you are planning to buy a mobile phone, are puzzled by what the jargon means, or are merely curious about the issues involved, then you will find something on our website to interest you. The site is divided into four sections: Glossary of terms, Technology, Phones, and News.
