First mobile phone was made on April 3, in 1973 – Today 45 years ago

1st mobile phone call was made by inventor to troll competitor


When AT&T launched their cellular system for car phones, Dr. Martin “Marty” Cooper and his team at Motorola decided to build a truly wireless first mobile phone, a handheld device that would truly free consumers to communicate on the go. Before the Cell phone invention, if you wanted to make a phone call, you did so from a device wired to the telephone grid. On April 3, 1973, Motorola employee Martin Cooper stood in midtown Manhattan and placed a call from the first mobile phone to the headquarters of Bell Labs in New Jersey to troll his competitor AT&T’s Joel Engel. His first words were “Joel, this is Marty. I’m calling you from a cellphone, a real, handheld, portable cell phone,” as he walked on the streets of New York.

Since then the mobiles have come a long way to this point. not they are more portable and have lots and lots of features. now the mobile phones are smart and making our lives simple or lazy whatever.
