Think about how easy it to make a phone call, text someone or look up the score of a game, all with the click of a button? Smartphone technology has made it incredibly easy to connect with people across the world and Motorola continues to deliver innovative technology with the new DROID RAZR MAXX by Motorola, the longest talk time of any 4G smartphone. But in 1983, one hour of talk time and eight hours of standby time with a LED display was a truly revolutionary invention.
On September 21, 1983, the United States Federal Communication Commission approved the the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, the world’s first commercial portable cellular phone. Available to consumers shortly after in 1984, the DynaTAC 8000X weighed 28 ounces and was 13 x 1.75 x 3.5 inches in dimension. Compare that to the DROID RAZR by Motorola which weighs 127 grams and is 130.7 x 68.9 x 7.1 mm and you see how far technology has progressed.
