Sure Apple made the device smaller and sleeker but long before the first iphone was for sale, while they where doing "research"(stealing/buying ideas from other people), I had a windows mobile 6.4 ipaq from HP.
iPaq released in 2004 first iPhone reveal was in 2007
Why is apple getting all the recognition as the inventors of the touchscreen smart phone when HP and Microsoft had a product avail to the public 3 years earlier?
Some of Hot Hardwares articles seem to cater a bit to Apple. I think Steve Jobs was a genius as a business man. Steve was the backbone of Apple and without him they have lost their competitive ferocity, their solid business structure, and a good chunk of ingenuity. The only thing that apple has left going for them is their ginormous bank account and the recognition that was brought to it by Steve Jobs. The only thing Apple has ever really been good at is making money and making things look pretty.
I don't disagree with you on post-Steve Jobs Apple. I'm on record saying that they've done next to nothing in terms of innovation since his death.
Do you remember what it was like to use those Windows Mobile devices years ago? It was a terrible experience. Basically just Windows, but worse, and crammed onto a too-small device.
While I myself bought an iphone and returned it the next weekend for an android device I still think it good device. The biggest reason I would ever want an iphone over and android is pretty much mainly the selection of apps. Plenty of times there have been apps for iphone that I couldn't even find something that was close to it for android.
I had that HP Ipaq its was ok, the hardware so wasnt really for it back then.
they didnt really create it first so much as they had better marketing and sales is all
Most computing and technological ideas came out of Xerox PARC. But Xerox isn't as common of a name as Microsoft or Apple. Why? Because it doesn't particularly matter who invented it. Technology is about iteration. Apple did it well and innovated upon the original invention.
We know no-body can even think to compare with Steve but I think Tim doing a pretty ok job alone would you guys agree?
