What a mobile phone looked like in "Wall Street" 1987

This THING is what Michael Douglas was using to communicate in 1987 when the movie "Wall Street" hit the screens the first time around. Now it is time again, and wow how things have changed. Today the mobile phone is mainstream and we are all addicted to it. My phone was dead for 5 minutes last night and I panicked!! 
One in four think their smartphones ”feels like an extension of their brain or body”, according to a study from Stanford University. 250 million text messages per month sent in Australia.
 The first hand held phone was demonstrated in 1973, using a handset weighing in at two kilos.
 I wonder how the world will communicate in another 20 years ahead, when Wall Street 3 may be out... Will we finally get that chip in our ear or learn telepathy?
