April 3 marks the 46th anniversary of the first cell phone call. It was Marty Cooper, a Motorola engineer who made that cell in 1973.
It really is incredible to think about how far cell phone technology has come in the past 46 years. The first cell phones weighed over 2 pounds, cost thousands of dollars, and had a battery life of around 35 minutes. Makes it hard to imagine ever complaining about your Smartphone again.
In addition to telephony, 2000s-era mobile phones support a variety of other services, such as text messaging, MMS, email, Internet access, short-range wireless communications (infrared, Bluetooth), business applications, video games, and digital photography. Mobile phones offering only those capabilities are known as feature phones; mobile phones which offer greatly advanced computing capabilities are referred to as smartphones.
