Marty reminisced with WBEZ in Chicago about the invention of the cell phone in the “Windy City”. Progress had been made in mobile communications in the early 1970s, but Marty knew peoples’ thirst for connectivity was not being fully realized. That realization led to the creation of the first handheld portable telephone by Marty and his Motorola team in 1973. Listen to WBEZ’s interview with Marty.
