Technophone Excel M2 Pocket Mobile Phone
In 1986 a small English company called Technophone (headed by an ex Ericsson radio engineer named Nils Martensson) revolutionised the mobile phone market. When their PC105T was released it was the smallest mobile on the market and earned global publicity and recognition for being the first mobile phone to fit in a pocket. Building on that success they quickly released an upgraded version called the PC105Ta or M2 which went on to sell well. This was followed by a less successful version for Philips called the M3. Together these three phones were the first class 3 analogue mobile phones in the world and were extremely influential in the subsequent development of the mobile phone market.
This M2 example came from its original owner and includes the charging cradle, warranty card, user guide and a leaflet showing other items in their range. Cosmetically it is in good cared for condition and great for display, but naturally due to its age the battery is dead so the phone no longer turns on.
