      For all early and late phone technology adapters, version 1.0   a l w a y s   always gives reason to create a version 2.0 …

      The DynaTAC 8000x, the first cell phone, was nicknamed what?

      (Looking up the answer is cheating… Don’t!)

      Weighing 2.5 pounds and stretching to 13 inches long (and you thought your iPhone was big), the DynaTAC 8000x was appropriately nicknamed “the Brick.” The phone gained Hollywood fame when it was featured prominently in the 1987 film “Wall Street” in the hands of Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas), the wealthy financier famous for his “greed is good” motto.
