Pasay City, Philippines (PressExposure) June 10, 2009 -- It’s rare to see someone without a cellular phone nowadays. They have become necessities for most people and they come in many different kinds with varying features.

According to Wikipedia, a cellular phone is a long-range, electronic device used for mobile voice or data communication over a network of specialized base stations known as cell sites. There are three basic types of cellular phones, the basic phone, the feature phone, and the smartphone.

* Basic Phones.

These phones are basically what a Cellular Mobile Philippine Phone Sun [http://www.expressregalo.com/category.aspx?scid=97&cid=24] was more than ten years ago. Aside from the standard voice function, a basic cellular phone also often offers SMS for text messaging.

* Feature Phones.

These cellular phones are called feature phones because they often focus on one special feature.

One of the most common types of feature phones is a camera phone. Camera phones have a built-in digital camera that can range from a VGA camera to an 8M-pixel camera. Sometimes these camera phones also allow video recording and sound recording. Sending and receiving pictures and videos are also made possible with MMS.

Another type of feature phone is a music phone. Music phones can play different music files. Sony Ericsson’s Walkman series of music phones are good examples.

* Smartphones.

Smartphones incorporate PDA functionality to the basic mobile phone. They offer advanced capabilities, often with PC-like functionality. Newer smartphones are heavily used for data communications including browsing mobile websites, email, and can be used as wireless modems. They also feature bigger and better screen resolutions and processing power. Some even have a built-in full keyboard, making it a miniature computer with phone capability, while others like the iPhone barely have any keys but employ a wide touchscreen. These smartphones are capable of running different mobile applications which are available for free download or for a fee. Several smartphones have been introduced to address a given market segment.
