The first public mobile phone was made by Martin Cooper of Motorola on April 4, 1973. It was a hefty weight of 1.15kg, 10 inches long and could only be used for 20 minutes before the battery died.
Since then the world of mobile phones has drastically changed. Our phones are now ‘smart’ and have become part of our lives (at least for us at Ungapped). We cannot go without them, they are our connection to the world and with the average person unlocking their smartphone 110 times a day it is no wonder that mobile is a continuously growing channel for marketing.
