First Cell Phone

It started on April 3, 1973, with Martin Cooper, a Motorola employee, on a bustling corner of New York City. A quick hello to a fellow researcher and key rival in creating the first cell phone. And from a simple call, a new world of innovation was born. 

Innovation has changed the cell phone from a 14-inch tall device with a screen density of fewer than 100 pixels to a device under 6 inches tall with a neural engine capable of 15.8 trillion operations per second and 5G capabilities.
