So, forty years ago today, the first cell phone call was made by this guy:
His name? Marty Cooper. While working for Motorola in 1973, Cooper developed the prototype that would later become the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x. You can see this phone is numerous movies from the period, including “Wall Street” and “American Psycho”. If you think an iPhone is expensive, then we doubt you’d shell out the $3,995 this phone went for. Some of its main features? It weighed only 2.5 lbs and could display only one line of lcd text. No Angry Birds!
