    We don’t usually realize this but the mobile phones we use daily which have sneaked up and become the most important part of our daily routines have evolved their design, looks and technology rampantly and have transcended their looks, feel and capabilities in a huge way. Realizing this fact, we have decided to go through and discuss the #phone review|

    The Analog Motorola DynaTAC …The evolution of cell phones Phones have come a long way since the first hand-held device was unveiled in 1983. The first mobile call was actually made ten years earlier, on April 3, 1973, making today the 40th anniversary of that first mobile phone call.

    1983 Motorola Cell phone ...zack Morris?

  • Time Out Sitters - San Antonio

    Throw Back Thursday! And we are throwin’ it back way before the Zach Morris cell phone days… On this day in 1973, a Motorola researcher/executive by the name of Martin Cooper made the first mobile telephone call from handheld subscriber equipment to his competitor at Bell Labs. This phone weighed almost 2.5 lbs and measured about 9” x 5” x 1.75”. This old school piece of technological history had a talk time of 30 minutes and took 10 hours to recharge!!

The "Brick" cell phone. The first cellular phone was the culmination of efforts begun at Bell Labs, which first proposed the idea of a cellular system in 1947, and continued to petition the FCC for channels through the 1950s and 1960s, and research conducted at Motorola. In 1960, John F. Mitchell, an electrical engineer who graduated from the Illinois Institute of Technology, became Motorola's chief engineer for its mobile communication products. Model, circa mid-1970's.

Once upon a time, everyone had one of these. In basic black. It was a big deal when color was introduced. BTW, our phone company charges us a couple of dollars a month for "touch tone service" - c'mon - when WAS the last time anyone used a rotary dial?

    If you pick this up and hit someone with it, well they know you mean business. Or they are in a coma.
