Some of them evolved and others stayed the same. Dr Martin Cooper is considered the inventor of the first portable handset and the first person to make a call on a portable cell phone in April 1973. Can you guess who he called? His rival, Joel Engel, head of research at Bell Labs. Cheeky! Apple was established on April 1, 1976 o sell the Appple 1 personal computer kit. These were hand-built and old as a motherboard, less than what is today considered a complete personal computer. . In the next challenge, you will be required to complete an time line of inventions.
