BBC Online tracked Marty down for a conversation about what led to the development of the cellular phone, the first cellular phone call and what lies ahead. The interview closed with this humorous exchange:
BBC: As the inventor of the personal mobile phone, are you rich beyond compare?
MARTY: (breaks into a broad smile and chuckles) I’m rich beyond all imagination in satisfaction and in happiness and in self-fulfilment.
BBC: But not necessarily in dollars and cents.
MARTY: (still smiling) Not necessarily.
