The First Cell Phones

Now that everyone is talking about the iPhone, we should look back at the evolution of the mobile phone.

This is the first "mobile" telephone in use in the early 1920s.

The next innovation was the car radio-telephone in the 1950s.

Then the brick phones of the 1980s.

The Motorola Startac was the first popular flip-phone. It suddenly made anyone using a brick look terribly old-fashioned.

Now the iPhone.
