Background and Identification ¶
As technology becomes more and more advanced, the devices that utilize those technologies become smaller and smaller. Today's cell phones have more computing power than past computers that took up an entire room of space. Modern mobile devices allow users to hold the world -- or at least all of its information, maps, and games -- in their hands.
Identifying your particular mobile device can be a task in itself. There are many different manufacturers that make many different products. Usually the manufacturer's name will appear somewhere on the front of the device, and the exact model number will appear on the back or underneath the battery. There is no failsafe mechanism to identify every device, though, so some research might be necessary on the user's part.
