May 2017[edit]

Hello All, I consider that the statement "In Europe, several mutually incompatible mobile radio services were developed." is very derogatory as well as being factually incorrect. Europe had the big disadvantage of language difficulties between licencing authorities but in spite of this developed GSM so a few years after the initial incompatible start had a well integrated system. It was many years after the Europeans had roaming throughout Europe with GSM that you could still not purchase a phone in one part of the USA and expect it to work in other parts. Japan and south Korea have still not managed to cooperate to this day (2017). I would hope that the original author would be good enough the correct this "Put down" of Europe before someone else does.

Inventor[edit]

The BBC is pushing the concept that the British invented the mobile phone. Why isn't this listed as a british invention? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:630:12:1090:ECC4:5605:C7AC:D7A3 (talk) 14:08, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

Date corrections[edit]

Dear Wikipedians,

I have just corrected the dates of some literary references in this article. The article erroneously listed 1707 as the date for a Punch Magazine article which came out in 1906. It also cited another literary reference from 1931 as having been published in 1631. I am somewhat concerned that this may be evidence of vandalism, as it seems to me unlikely (though still possible) that these would both be legitimate mistakes. In addition, London is referred to as "Løndon", which I haven't corrected. 187.147.2.114 (talk) 20:51, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
