The 4500x and 4800x Hand portable or 'transportable' phones were mobile..... Just.
Imagine a car battery with a car phone handset nailed to the top. What you see is what you get. These were the true workhorses of the early phone age. For the rich and famous such as Gordon Gekko there were the DynaTAC phones with small(!) size and large price tag, But for those who relied on a phone for work, needed longer battery life and better signal in weak areas, this was the best solution. Many companies provided these phones for their workers who needed to be always in contact. Today many employers would face litigation for the damage to health caused by lugging around this telecom behemoth.
This phone was the evolution from the very first 1970's phones which were usually car mounted or built into a suitcase. The car mounted phones were very large and complicated (and you would need a car to move them) These hand portables were the first forays into products which could be used in a car and then removed for the person who couldn't afford to be out of reach. It would also help if you had the muscles of the Mayor of California.
MOST YOUNG PEOPLE WILL HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE OF THESE ..AND I DOUBT THEY COULD PUT ON EIN THERE POCKET LOL
