This Day in Tech History – My Favorite Phone

January 3

On this day way back in 1996, Motorola released its StarTac cellphone.  I remember giving up my Motorola Flip Phone for this amazingly compact and versatile device a few months after its release.  It didn’t come cheap either as I the world of contracts and the like really hadn’t taken over but I used my meager paycheck to grab up this piece of technology wonder that fit perfectly into my pocket or into the protective holder that hung on my belt.  In many ways, I miss this simpler time of just using a phone as a phone!
