Motorola DROID in, iPhone out for the inventor of the cell phone
Many people might not be too familiar with the name Martin Cooper, but unlike the big CEO names in the mobile world out there, he has some deeper connections with the foundation of the modern cell phone. In fact, Martin Cooper is none other than the inventor of the cellular telephone that today we consider an all too needed commodity. Cooper was able to to sit down and do a piece on C-SPAN where he discussed the spectrum and politics surrounding the cell phone industry. After much talk, the topic on hand then shifted to the focus of what handset he was carrying on a day-to-day basis. Cooper went on to say, “Depends when you ask me. I always have the latest cell phone, and I try every cell phone out, only because people like you keep asking me. Right now I'm using the Droid, because I want to get some experience with the Android operating system, and I, so far, have some favorable results." Android has seemed to get under the nose of a lot of people in the industry – as we've heard not too long ago how Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak took a dive into Android with the Nexus One. Cooper actually was using an iPhone prior to the Motorola DROID – he ended up giving that to his grandson. Even though the DROID does almost everything, Cooper still relies on the using a tried and true feature phone for day-to-day calls.
