CTIA 20 Years Tribute features Cooper


NEW ORLEANS-A display celebrating the 20 years of commercial wireless services at the CTIA Wireless 2003 show includes a special feature on ArrayComm Inc.’s chairman and chief executive officer Martin Cooper and the wireless phone Cooper used to place the first potable cellular phone call on April 3, 1973.

“Our team at Motorola created the portable cellular phone to demonstrate the principle that people are fundamentally mobile,” said Cooper. “We saw the telephone as an agent of freedom-freedom to be where the action is, freedom to be on the move and yet to always be in touch.”
