The first mobile phone call was made 40 years ago today, on 3 April 1973. Martin Cooper, at the time a senior engineer at Motorola and now a member of our Science and Technology Committee, called a rival colleague at another telecoms company and announced he was speaking from "a 'real' cell telephone".
