Martin Cooper said on the show "How William Shatner Changed the World", well, right from Wiki:

"The show then examines the life of Martin Cooper, the chief engineer at Motorola, who invented the cell phone. Cooper states that Star Trek was his inspiration for the cell phone, and discusses the similarities between the modern day cell phone and a Star Trek communicator. He also discusses how Star Trek introduced the concept of computer voice recognition dialing."

A bug in the hand is better than one as yet undetected.
