Cell phones have certainly evolved since the first cellular call was placed on April 3, 1973 by Martin Cooper,who is now chairman, CEO and co-founder of ArrayComm, Inc. At the time of the call, Martin Cooper was general manager of Motorola’s Communications Systems Division.
That first call was placed to Cooper’s rival at AT&T’s Bell Labs from the streets of New York City, was the beginning of the fundamental technology and communications shift away from the place and toward the person.

It could be said that the cell phones of today are the world’s most ubiquitous computers, with smart phones becoming more advanced by the day. There are approximately four billion cell phones in use around the world right now, a large percentage of them with web access.
Essentially, cell phones have created standard of constantly evolving information technology. It is astounding to consider how even business has been affected by cell phones with web access. In the past, those with computers were the only ones performing searches for products and services.
