The very first mobile telephone system was released in 1956. Astron's own National Director Michael Maciekowich owned one of the first car-based cell phones, which required its own suitcase-like carrying case!
How times have changed. Now cell phones the size of the palm of your hand can do so many things - all at the same time!
