First Mobile Phone Call Placed 40 years ago

Can you imagine using the phone above to make phone calls as you are in your car or walking down the street? This prehistoric object is larger than most of our DVD players these days.  

This phone is the Motorola DynaTAC & was the first cell phone used on April 3, 1973 by Marty Cooper, who was an employee of Motorola, to call Bell Labs, then a division of ATT. The DynaTac weighed 2.5 lbs, had a one line LED display and cost $3,995.00USD

I know some of these specs are unimaginable to many of us today. With our current advanced cell phone technology, we can do everything from turning on our lights in our homes to booking a flight to a wonderful country like Belize. As if this isn’t enough, Apple is launching a new product the iWatch. 

So in honor of the day that paved the way for the Smartphone’s, the tablets, the android and the 4g phenomena, whip out your mobile device and visit m.sanignaciobelize.com mobile site.
