Let's see where they go from here. Supposed to be heard in court in Dec.
well the first smartphone dates back even older but i mean like a large screen no keyboard or any of that
the oldest phone with that design i could find was made in 1993 by ibm called the IBM Simon-the first PDA/Phone combo.
also look at
Nokia 9000 Communicator
The first smartphone series, driven by an Intel 386 CPU.
Sony Ericsson P800
This smartphone featured a touchscreen and up to 128mb of memory
One of the first 3G smartphones by Nokia, still one of the lightest and smallest
This was the first 3G Pocket PC phone at HTC and the first to come with Windows Mobile
O2 XDA Flame
The XDA Flame is the first dual processor PDA-phone in the 02 line
all released before the iphone but with a similar design to the iphone, and also much better tech, dual core and 3g which the iphone lacked.
