    The first cell phone was avaiable to consumers in 1984, but the idea of a “portable cell phone” came about in 1972 by Martin Cooper who worked for Motorola.  After ten years and $100 million in development costs, the Motorola Dyna-Tac was unveiled.  The phone weighed two pounds, offered about one half-hour of talk time in between chargings, and cost $3,995.
