Mobile phone celebrates 40-year anniversary. Back on April 3 1973 that Motorola employee made a call in New York on a Motorola DynaTAC. This globally considered as the first public cellphone call.
DynaTAC was 9 inches tall, comprised 30 circuit boards, had a talk-time of 35 minutes and 10 hours to recharge. It weighed 2.5 pounds, and went on to sell for $4,000, over $9,000 in today’s terms.
It took Motorola ten years for them to bring that phone, to the market.
