Today celebrated the 40th anniversary of the very first phone call using a mobile phone, the call was from one Motorola employee to their competitor at the time – AT&T. We’re going to take a look at some of the gems that the past 40 year’s of mobile technology has bequeathed us with. According to some websites there are over 999 Billion phones in the world (you might want some of this with that). There’s no doubt that Ireland’s cupboards and drawers are hiding away some of these age-old relics of tech.

Today’s phones are becoming a lot more feature rich thanks to guys like Nashtech Software and other mobile application development companies but we wouldn’t be where we are today if it wasn’t for the pioneers who went before. We hope you’ve enjoyed this little trip down memory lane. Watch this space for a more in-depth look at mobile technology throughout the ages.
