The first words spoken via the telephone were said by Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone. On March 10, 1876, he made a phone call to his assistant, Thomas Watson and said "Mr. Watson come here I want to see you."
Ever wondered what was said in the first cell phone conversation :
The first handheld cell phone call was made by Martin Cooper (Motorola) on the 3rd April 1973 to Dr Joel Engel (Bell Labs). The cell phone cost $3,995 and weighed two pounds, leading to the nickname "the brick". Owning a cell phone was the ultimate status symbol, it took 10 years for the cell phone to be accepted as a business tool.
