Most of us don't know who Martin Cooper is, he was the first person to make a call on a handheld cell phone prototype in 1973 and he is named on the patent “radio telephone system” filed that same year. Android now has some strong endorsers in the inventor of Linux and now the inventor of cellphones.

Cooper did a piece on C-SPAN last week where he talked about spectrum and the politics of the industry. He also discussed the possibility that cellphones can cause cancer. The most interesting part of the interview came around the 30 minute mark where he stated:

“Depends when you ask me. I always have the latest cell phone, and I try every cell phone out, only because people like you keep asking me. Right now I’m using the Droid, because I want to get some experience with the Android operating system, and I, so far, have some favorable results.”
