It is monumental. On April 3rd 1973, Martin Cooper made the first mobile call on the nine-inch long and 28-ounce heavy Motorola DynaTAC. He was dialing up a rival at AT&T, apparently on the grounds if whether or not “to see if my call sounds good at your end.” Since then, we’ve come a long way, switching to fast digital connectivity, new materials and forms factors, full operating systems, and operating systems as complex and capable as their desktop counterparts. And as you can see above, I am posing in a picture with the great Dr. Martin Cooper.
Ah, the cellphone. It will never cease to amaze us all — hopefully.
