Motorola is no longer the leader in the cell phone industry, but it is the company that released the world's first mobile telephone. It turned out to be a model DynaTAC 8000X that weighed about one kilogram. A prototype of the device was revealed in 1973, but commercial sales began only in 1983.

From a mobile device weighing about one kilogram, to compact phones weighing only a few grams and smartphones, Sputnik's photo gallery gives you a glimpse into the various cell phone models over the years.
