The author outlines a brief history of wireless telecommunications (dating back to shortly after WW2), to come to the conclusion that the frantic pace of the growth of wireless business translates interestingly into social facts, but also penetrates into the sphere of cinematic imagery. The mobile phone revolution and the rise of the 'culture of mobile phones' has resulted in the emergence of new behaviour patterns (cell phone conversation in front of other people), that are very interesting from the sociological point of view. Attempts to introduce new mobile etiquette among users have also been made. In his concluding remarks he cites J. P. Roos (one of the first to have researched the social impact of mobile phone culture) as observing that this invention is an object that perfectly embodies post-modernist contradictions, so to say is an icon of the time.
