Saturday Superstore: Portable Radio Phone




Portable Radio Phone Advertisement -
Now!, April, 1981
We take mobile phones for granted so much now, yet it doesn't seem that long ago that phones as big as bricks with five miles radius were the technology of tomorrow...

Thanks to fellow blogger Andy Walmsley who sent in the above advert from Now!  published 3 April 1981, and pointed out: 'The odd thing about the advert is that it says you can connect the unit with your “local GPO exchange” but down the side it says “for use outside UK”. So how does that work then??'

Answers in the comment box please...
