I prefer "Mobile, Wireless, Communication Device utilising Radio Frequencies at 900MHz or 1800MHz". :D

Let's call it "MWCDRF900/1800"

why not mobile station?

and also why call it cell / cellular?
I believe it is the way the base station divides the area of coverage into a certain number of cells. Thus the term 'cell phone'.

Studied before, threw it back to my lecturer liaoz. :D

Sounds good to me.......

Imagine the M1, Singtel or Starhub and all the mobile retailers have to let all the customer know "So sir would you like to purchase a MWCDRF900, 1800 or 1900 series?

"This is our latest MWCDRF900 series with built in BLUETOOTH and INFRA-RED technology. Now with 3rd Generation MWCDRF, we have included a new gadget in our MWCDRF......"........Keke.....:bsmilie:
