RF Cafe University"Factoids," "Kirt's Cogitations," and "Tech Topics Smorgasbord" are all manifestations of my ranting on various subjects relevant (usually) to the overall RF Cafe theme. All may be accessed on these pages:

Using a list on Wikipedia as my Cat - S50 8GB Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Military Grade - RF Cafesource, the following table presents cellphone manufacturer host countries in descending order (see Wiki list for more details). Even though the majority of mobile phones are manufactured in countries like China and Taiwan, most are not designed there - although China has the single largest number of companies: 24 (17%). The United States comes in second with 15 (10%) cellphone companies. India is home to 13 (9%), Japan hosts 8 (6%), and Russia has 7 (5%). There are a total of about 144 that are not marked as discontinued. Stand-out names, at least as translated into English, include 'Technology Happy Life' from China, 'Ringing Bells' from India, 'John's Phone' from The Netherlands (and 'myPhone' from Poland, in case your name is not John). In the list of U.S. companies, I was surprised to learn that Caterpillar - the earth moving equipment people - makes a mobile phone. CAT phones are ruggedized devices with special features like thermal imaging cameras. The Wikipedia list has Garmin (GPS) in the U.S. list, but it appears they had maybe one failed cellphone a few years ago and decided to stick with what they know.
