The first mobile phone call was made 45 years ago, Motorola celebrates with deals

Today, April 03, 2018 it’s a very special day, as we’re celebrating the first phone call ever made from a mobile phone. On April 03, 1973, Motorola’s Martin Cooper placed the first mobile cellular phone call from a Manhattan street corner, using a prototype of what would eventually become the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x.

It took the device ten years before it reached consumers hands. On September 2, 1983, Motorola made history after the FCC approved the 8000x, the world’s first portable cell phone. The device hit the market with a huge $3,995 price tag attached to it.

Well to mark this special occasion, Motorola is offering special deals on some of its products.
