What other touchscreen phones were there in 2007? Or even 2008? THERE WERE NONE.
When the iphone was shown, every single company had to play catchup. Every other touchscreen phone after the iphone is based on the iphone in some way. Android itself, wouldn't exist if not for the iphone.
If not for the iphone and Steve Jobs vision, we'd still be using this(the most popular phone of 2006):
Was my phone before the iPhone was a pipedream of Steves. Touch screen, internet browser, music player, expandable storage, e-mail clients...
Obviously Palm pioneered the smartphone.
What did the iPhone do again?
