In a nod to how far phones have come, the record-setting text read: The telephone was invented by Alexander Graham Bell (UK), who filed his patent for the telephone on 14 February 1876 at the New York Patent Office, USA. The first intelligible call occurred in March 1876 in Boston, Massachusetts, when Bell phoned his assistant in a nearby room and said "Come here Watson, I want you."
"All the contestants at the World Cup are at the cutting edge of mobile technology and the earliest to embrace the latest mobile trends," said Dr. Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
