Remember This? The First Cell Phone Call

Way back in the dark ages (April 1973), the first private handheld cellular phone call was made from New York City to New Jersey. Dr. Martin Cooper of Motorola completed the historic call on a prototype Motorola DynaTAC handset.

It was a phone call that turned into a fundamental shift in how we communicate with each other. Previously, other companies, including Bell Labs, thought about mobile phones but they believed they would be used inside cars. Cooper and his team at Motorola had a different vision that saw everyone owning and carrying around their own phone, free at last from having a device connected by a wire to a phone plug.
