Mobile phone standards: Cutting through the alphabet soup

wireless.itworld.com |  Mobile & Wireless

Despite more than a decade of common use, mobile phones are remarkably unstandardized: everything from the technology driving the network you use to make calls to the elements of the UI on your phone screen can vary wildly from service provider to service provider - and even from phone to phone supplied by the same service provider. Europe, Asia, and North America employ different underlying technologies to tie cell phones together, and rapid technological advancement means that the industry is changing it a dizzying rate. Despite all this chaos, there are some standards tying everything together, and things are slowly becoming more standardized. These links will help you understand the alphabet soup and make decisions about your mobile purchasing.
