Celebrating 40 years of the mobile phone

Motorola DynaTAC

On the 3 April 1973, Martin Cooper, an employee at Motorola, made the world’s first call using a mobile phone.

Today, there are almost just as many phone subscriptions as there are people. And according to experts the two most significant developments in mobile phone technology was the introduction of internet and the availability of mobile phones.

The first phone used back in 1973, the Motorola DyanaTAC, was nine inches tall, used 30 circuit boards and took 10 hours to recharge. Today, mobile phones are touch screen, take high resolution photos and can access the internet.

Many experts suggest that the next 40 years will be very exciting for mobile phone technology.
