It does these days, the things are so small.
I used to install the old handbag sized (first generation) mobiles, onto the first handportables (size of a house brick...think only fools & horses), right upto the latest bluetooth kits.

First gen, weren't they the ones where you used to have to stand under a "Booster Signal" that had a rabbit head motif on it? Like the playboy bunny. Blue on a white background.

No they came out long after the first true Tacs cellular phones produced by Racal the VT1 was the vehicle based unit and the VT-h1 was the handportable (played the death march when battery was low) I seem to recall.

That rabbit network was supposed to operate in city/town centres only, never did take off & was subsiquently purchased by a company that then released the Dolphin network now known as tetra or tetrapol (the old bill use it)

TV engineer,moved into computers in the early 80's,moved up the ranks from the bench became the account manager for laptop repairs at European level handling a £1.5M account but too much pressure and living out of suitcases. Going to central Europe and back in one day for a meeting starts to get tiring when you're expected back in the office at 8am the next day. So I went back to training and got a proper job.
