Throughout history humans have been extremely fortunate to benefit in a myriad of ways from the innovation of others.
Innovation is the introduction of
new things, ideas or ways/means of doing something”.
Innovation plays a pivotal role in driving the lifestyles we lead and futures we may have.
One such example of innovation
was the hand held mobile

On April 3, 1973 the head of Motorola's communications systems division
Martin Cooper, using a prototype of what would become the world’s first commercial cell phone, placed a call from the streets of New York City to the headquarters of Bell Labs in New Jersey.
In doing so Motorola, driven by the vision of Motorola's chief of portable communication products John F. Mitchell and Cooper, became the first company to produce a handheld mobile phone and will forever be remembered as one of the great innovators in the field of communication technologies.
Prior to 1973, mobile telephones was limited to phones installed in cars and other vehicles.
Cooper's call caused a fundamental technology and communications market shift toward the person and away from the place.
"People want to talk to other people - not a house, or an office, or a car. Given a choice, people will demand the freedom to communicate wherever they are, unfettered by the infamous copper wire.
It is that freedom we sought to vividly demonstrate in 1973," said Martin Cooper.
The handheld mobile phone provided users with a freedom fixed line devices could never afford.

The invention of the
mobile phone (also known
as a cellular phone, cell phone,
hand phone, or simply a phone)
allowed users to make and receive telephone calls over a radio link while moving around a wide geographic area.
The technology depends on a
connection to a cellular network
provided by a mobile phone
operator, allowing access to the
public telephone network.
By contrast, a cordless telephone
is used only within the short range
of a single, private base station.
