Thirty years ago today, the first cell phone call was made by a Motorola researcher on the streets of Manhattan to demo the technology. The reasearcher called Joel Engel, the head of Bell Labs during that historic call. I wonder if he’s the one that started the whole “I need to talk as loud as I can into my cell phone” thing. Anyway, what I find amazing is that the roots of mobile phones can be traced back to car phones that were introduced in the 1940’s! You’d think that things would be more advanced for 60-year-old technology.
