A 1980s Motorola TV ad, announcing the ‘cellular revolution’, where phones only weigh 850 grams

“Eventually, seeing people using cellular phones may seem as commonplace as someone checking time on an electronic watch, figuring on an electronic calculator or programming on an electronic computer.”

THAT is a mobile phone? THAT is a watch? THAT is a calculator? THAT is a computer?

“Industry watchers say there are only a few thousand cellular phones in use right now, but that number is expected to grow considerably within the next few years, during the cellular revolution.”

It’s a grown a little beyond a few thousand users, yes 🙂
