History

Was this the world’s first mobile phone, filmed in 1922?

Found by a researcher in the Pathe film vaults, this clip from 1922 shows that in the early 20th century mobile phone technology and music on the move was not only being thought of but being trialled.

Which gives the device in the film a good claim to be the world’s first mobile phone.

More information over on the British Pathe blog.
