Also during the interview, viewers were allowed to submit questions to Martin and five of those questions where selected, questions such as what inspired Martin and his team to create the first mobile phone way back in the 1960’s, and the first cell phone and supporting system arrived from Motorola in 1973 basically to prove that someone else other than AT&T could do it.
Another question was why where the mobile phone so big, and Martin respond with that it is difficult to explain what the tech was like back then, but back then there were no personal computers, and no large scale integrated circuits, so they have to construct that mobile phone with thousands of individual parts.
