    Carol Ann Bowler of Cambridge is seen using a miniature radiotelephone inside a car, November 1965, showing the receiver in her handbag.

    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.
