Cell phones were quite popular in business then, but a bit too bulky and expensive for personal use.
We called them car phones.
Btw, I remember all the dismissals of Amiga features as wasteful or gimmicks. That was until the others incorporated said gimmicks into their own and called them advanced features.

One of the easiest questions. IBM Clones and consoles became a thing and overtook the Amiga in power and price. I suspect most developers and publishers moved onto the PC and consoles and didn't turn back. If the Amiga did survive I suspect it would of become another manufacture of PC's as that is where the money was. Blame Doom.
