OKI, a Japanese company, was one of the pioneers of mobile telephones, working with Bell Laboratories in the 70s. However, its first product for the UK market did not arrive until in 1989.
The OKI CDL700E was launched with a huge advertising campaign in 1989 by Martin Dawes Communications, which formed an exclusive link with the OKI brand. The phone itself took some inspiration from the look of a military walkie-talkie, but with some brightly coloured buttons and a large flexible aerial. It was small and light for the time, significantly lighter than the Motorola 8500X, but was easily eclipsed for size and weight by Motorola's latest creation, the 9800X, but with such a small price tag, the OKI CDL700E must have looked attractive.
Martin Dawes, the founder of Martin Dawes Communications, was unlike many of the loud and brash barrow boy types who started as the first mobile phoneretailers back in 1985. He was a quiet, unassuming man with an eye for spotting new technology trends. It wasa talent passed from father to son. Martin's father, Fred Dawes, founded a TV retail empire in the 50swhich became Rumbelow's. Martin also went into the TV business, founding a chain of shopsrenting colour TVs in the early 70s.
In 1985 he saw the opportunity to get into the mobile phone business and started Martin Dawes Communications, selling both Motorola and NEC phones in the 80s.

The tie up with OKI allowed Dawes to push a unique product to the British market. It was smaller and lighterthan many mobiles of the time. If Dawes himself was shy, the advertising campaign, which called the OKI CDL700E 'The most potent professional and powerful business aid you'll ever share a high level conversation with', was not. Later Formula 1 star Nigel Mansell, who was pictured using one, promoted the phone.
OKI made a few more phones for the UK market, but did not make a massive dent in Motorola's or Nokia's sales. Martin Dawes Communications, however, continued to be successful. Dawes sold his stake in the business to Cellnet in 1999 for £70m.
