You might find this story interesting...

Somewhere in either Chicago, Baltimore or Washington, someone plunked down $3,995 to buy the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, the first handheld cellphone, on March 13, 1984 ? 30 years ago today.

Good article. There is a link in this article to another great article reprint, "Hold the Phone".
Is also good to see correct info about the Dynatac 8000X going on sale in the US in 1984.
A lot of people get confused and think it went on sale in 1983, it was only first announced in that year.
