The Brick was the name given to Motorola’s DynaTac. It was the first commercially launched phone back in 1983. Costing some $10,000 in current dollars. It was around 1 kg in weight, 25 cm high with an antenna, and had a battery life of 30 minutes after a recharge of 10 hours. Other than dialing a number it could store 30 different dialing locations and there was no other feature. Still it was a privilege to own it at that time.
