50 years ago, American Martin Cooper made the world’s first mobile phone call.
Martin Cooper, 94, is considered the inventor of the mobile phone and used the prototype mobile device to make a call on April 2, 1973.
Mobile phones have now become an integral part of our lives and life feels incomplete without them.
But which smartphone do mobile phone inventors prefer?
So know that Martin Cooper loves using iPhone, in fact he buys a new iPhone every year while also using Apple Watch daily.
But they don’t like using smartphone apps and use their iPhones to make calls, send messages and control hearing aids.
Martin Cooper made the world’s first call with a prototype mobile phone called the Dynatek 8000X.
The prototype device cost $100 million to develop and was not introduced to the market for the next 10 years.
When the phone was introduced in 1983, it was touted as the world’s first mobile phone weighing more than one kilogram.
It took 10 hours to charge and could only talk for 30 minutes before charging again.
It was priced at 4,000 dollars, which is equivalent to 11,500 dollars (more than 3.2 million Pakistani rupees) in the current era.
But now Martin Cooper feels that people are misusing mobile phones.
In an interview, he said that he sees people on the streets in such a state that their eyes are only on the screen, which increases the risk of accidents.
But he believes that every new generation is getting smarter and people will gradually learn to use mobile phones more effectively.
He said that mobile phones need to be used responsibly and should not be over-relied on.
