Word Description
Lithium-ion A battery technology used in personal mobile phones. Lithium-ion batteries generally provide more energy capacity than Nickel Metal Hydride batteries of the same weight.
Leather Case Protective pouch that shields phone from damage and the elements.
Languages The number of different languages in which the phone can display its text.
Modem A device which converts digital signals to analogue signals and vice versa.
MMS Multi Media Messaging. Allows users to be able to do everything from inseting their own video clips and pictures into text messages before customising them iwht rich colours and sound clips.
Mb As a measure of computer processor storage and real and virtual memory, a megabyte (abbreviated MB) is 2 to the 20th power bytes, or 1,048,576 bytes in decimal notation. Most mobile phones require storage of data now, due to being Java enabled, and also having the function of a camera. They usually come with at least one megabyte of storage space.
MHz The megahertz, abbreviated MHz, is a unit of electromagnetic (EM) wave frequency equal to one million hertz (1,000,000 Hz). An EM signal having a frequency of 1 MHz is near the centre of the standard amplitude-modulation (AM) radio broadcast band, and has a wavelength of 300 meters, or about 980 feet. An EM signal of 100 MHz is near the middle of the standard frequency-modulation (FM) radio broadcast band, and has a wavelength of 3 meters, which is a little less than 10 feet. Some radio transmissions are made at frequencies up to many thousands of megahertz.
MIDI MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a protocol designed for recording and playing back music on digital synthesizers that is supported by many makes of personal computer sound cards. Originally intended to control one keyboard from another, it was quickly adopted for the personal computer and now the mobile phones. Rather than representing musical sound directly, it transmits information about how music is produced. The command set includes note-ons, note-offs, key velocity, pitch bend and other methods of controlling a synthesizer. The sound waves produced are those already stored in a wavetable in the receiving instrument or sound card. Since a MIDI file only represents player information, it is far more concise than formats that the sound directly. An advantage is very small file size. A disadvantage is the lack of specific sound control.
MMS MMS (Multi Media Messaging) allows users to be able to do everything from inserting their own video clips and pictures into text messages before customising them with rich colours and sound clips.
mAh Mili amps. The term of measurement used in batteries for power capacity.
Model A name or number designated to aparticular handset in a product range.
NiMh Nickel Metal Hydride. A common battery technology used today on most mobile phones. This type of battery can be charged anytime. They are reputed not to develop memory effect.
NITZ (Network Identity and Time Zone)
Nickel Cadium Nickel cadmium batteries are robust and long-lasting
Nickel Metal Hydride A type of batteries hold more power for their size than NiCd batteries and enviromentally friendly.
Number of Lines The number of lines of text available on the screen of a handset.
Number of Rings The number of different ring types installed into the phone as standard.
Number Portability The ability to retain the existing mobile phone number and switching to any network.
Orginiser Diary The ability to store and recall important dates, times, appointments, meetings etc into a handset.
