“I'm calling you from a cell phone, a real handheld portable cell phone.”
— Motorola's Martin Cooper to Bell Labs rival Joel Engel on April 3, 1973.

The Verge recounts that Cooper made the call from midtown Manhattan, adding: “The call was placed on a Motorola DynaTAC 8000x, which weighed 2.5 pounds, a far cry from today’s 4-ounce handsets.”

The cellphone is 40 years old today [The Verge]

@westiemania 직업 덕분에, 40년 후에 이야기꺼리 풍족하게 삽니다. 무엇이든, 지나고 보면 다 추억이 되고 역사가 되죠. 제가 왜 위키에 기꺼이 제 모든 걸 납본했겠습니까.ㅎㅎ
