The first ever cellphone call (not by Apple, in case you were wondering)

An interesting Moment in Time in the Globe today: today is the 48th anniversary of the first official cellphone call.

The first cellphone was not the size of a brick; it was the size, and even the shape of a child's wellington boot. The call was made on April 3rd 1973 (no, not the 1990s, or even the 1980s), and it was a Motorola DynaTAC phone (no, not Apple, the Apple Computer Company did not even exist yet, and that first call was made to Motorola's closest rival, AT&T).
