Birthday of the telephone

March 10th, 2011

Bell and the telephone135 years ago, on the 10th of March 1876, a man called out his assistant:

“Mr. Watson, come here, I want to see you”

It was the first phone call in history and the man, Alexander Graham Bell, is considered the father of the telephone. There was a controversy between Bell and Elisha Gray, who claimed to be the inventor of the liquid transmission concept, actually used to make the phone call, but nevertheless, it was Bell who later developed the electromagnetic telephone that we know today.
