Evolution of the Smartphone

 

Smartphones are expected to eclipse PCs as the most common way to access the web next year, which is great because the PC would never fit in our pocket. Now, it’s time to take a look back at the evolution of smartphones; courtesy of the folks who brought you the world’s first Android and Windows phones.

    it’s nice that you even mention apple.. but it would have been fair to put them in 2007 when they released what we now know as a smartphone.. and I am not an apple fan by any means but fair is fair

      They didn’t released the first smartphone. There were many smartphones with touch screens. They made the first cheap smartphone with the biggest screen in the market.

    What about the Palm Treo? That was a smartphone! Really it was!

      Agreed. Treo was the killer platform for nearly two years. I had two of them.

    htc is one of my most admired mobile phone companies and i will love to see them do great thing and even take over the whole mobile scene. they should take advantage of emerging markets to expand their reach cos they have great potentials.

    • http://www.facebook.com/rdjakhangirov Rustam Djakhangirov

      Agree with you. However, htc needs to develop technologies and not just consume them.

    Ugh, one of the it guys in the web design company I worked at had a 9210, he was so proud he could bounce a service while drinking at the bar. 3 years later I was on xda downloading a skin for my winmo phone.
