Mat's got a gallery of mobile phones from the last two decades up at Wired.
Shoot, I have a Motorola model that makes this one look tiny in comparison. It’s a 4″x4″x10″ aluminum brick with a separate handset on a coiled cord.
so apparently nothing happened in Cellular phones between 1980 and 1990?
Yeah, and where’s the Realtor’s best friend, the Bag Phone?
Cellular phones had a long history before they were pocketable.
My grandfather had that motorola phone, he used it on his boat. This gallery gives me fond memories of my first phone, a motorola microTAC piper, circa 1995. I had it until 2002, when someone broke into my car and stole it.
That website brings me back to 1999, when you had to load the entire page every time you wanted to tab forward to another image. I have expect to see a new episode of Suck.com after that.
oops, HALF expect.
