ohh MIGHTY cell !!!!

Can there be life without a cell phone?

PS: Cell phone is a ....................... 2 way wireless communicating device which also happens to have a built-in 2 MP camera (still and video with sound and a flash!!!), mp3 player, Bluetooth (wireless for a wireless), 1 GB memory card, games, calendar, alarm clock, stop watch, radio and in some cases internet connectivity, operating system, GPS etc ................. and possessed by about 1.5 to 2 billion people [I personally think it is the people who are 'possessed' by the cell phone and not the other way around].

Anyhow back to the point, say hello to the genesis of the cell phones........the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, world's first mobile phone to receive FCC acceptance in 1983. And check out some of its cool features {with comments from an imaginary current day's salesman};

** just 10 inches high {feel free to use it for self-defense}
** only 800 gm (28 ounces) in weight {built in mini-dumbells}
** {quality time of} 35 min talk time with 10 hrs charging time !!!! {ohh boy}

Well that was life :) once long long ago. As you can see it was a really "mighty cell"

The bearded guy is Dr. Martin Cooper, a former general manager for the systems division at Motorola, who is considered the inventor of the first portable handset and the first person to make a call on a portable cell phone in April 1973.
The first call he made was to his rival, Dr. Joel Engel, research head of Bell Labs.....impressive impudence.
