Almost everybody has a cell these days. These days we can get a hold of anyone at a moments notice. And we can do so much more with phones than just talk today. The first cellphone being created back in 1973.
Today, the cellphone turns 40 years old. Its creator, Motorola’s Martin Cooper, placed the first ever call while he was walking along 6th Avenue in New York City. Now, 40 years later we have a whole new world. That first call went to his rival, Bell Labs’ head of research, Joel Engel.
At the time, Cooper was using a Motorola Dynatac. It had 20 minutes of talk time and weighed 2.5lbs.
