The origin of the cell phone comes from the first radios in the

1920's and from the use of police radios in the 1940's. The concept

of the cell phone was developed in 1947 by Bell labs and it came

from the mobile car phone. The first actual cell phone was made in

1973 by Martin Cooper who used the idea of the car phone and

applied the technology to make a portable cell phone. In 1984 the

public was able to buy the first cell phones.
