Cell phone pioneer Cooper an Android man
Martin Cooper, who placed what is believed to have been the first public call from a cell phone, reveals that he's currently using an Android phone. Guess which one!
Android. Guess which.knows a thing or two about cell phones, having placed what is believed to have been the first public call from a portable cell phone and all. And while he's owned an iPhone before, he revealed in a recent interview on C-SPAN that his current handset of choice runs
The entire interview is below and worth watching, but know that the relevant conversation comes a little after half an hour:
I always have the latest cell phone, and I try every cell phone out, only because people like you keep asking me. Right now I'm using the Droid, because I want to get some experience with the Android operating system, and I, so far, have some favorable results.
More fun facts: when he was through with his iPhone he donated it to his grandson. Also: he uses a feature phone, too! What I'm most interested in, though, isn't what phone he's rocking at the moment. I want to know what's next on his list. Because so far, Martin Cooper's got excellent taste.
