When looking at the technology behind Star Trek, certain things have become a semi reality(Cell phones, laser beams)
Laser beams predate Star Trek by many years, and communicators seem to be basically point to point communications, more like a fairly simple radio transceiver than a cell phone with it's combination of radio handsets, receiver towers, phone lines and the occasional satellite.

Compared to modern multifunction smartphones, the communicator borders on the ridiculous.
