The Evolution Of Smartphones [Infographic]

The Smartphone History Timeline Infographic

It’s hard to picture a world without smartphones these days. I mean, we’ve had them for so long now, and I hardly remember when they were not around. I remember having a Nokia phone (not a smartphone) back in the 90s, but that’s as far back as I can remember even having the ability to remotely log onto the Internet on a phone. It was when it was still just text on these devices, no images, just pure text. 1993 was the year when the world saw the first real smartphone. It was when the IBM Simon was released, and it had minor apps. It had functions such as a fax, a PDA and even a pager. The evolution since then has been nothing less than amazing.

It’s the always entertaining and knowledgeable Tech King who put together this nicely executed infographic. It will take you back to the very beginning of our smartphone world, and take you through a journey that most of us have probably forgotten already. It was not until 14 years after IBM first released that first version of a smartphone that Apple released the iPhone. That is quite a leap, and I think IBM really deserves some props for that.

We are too used to just glorifying the iPhone all the time, and this makes us somewhat ignorant to the other brands and the awesome technology that is around us. Some people have discovered it, and some of those people wouldn’t even go near the iPhone just because they like their smartphone better than the iPhone. I don’t know if it is the same symptom the Apple Fanboys have when they just want Apple gear just because… well, it’s Apple. So we’re seeing this picking sides all over again, just like we did with Apple and Microsoft before (and which is still present to some extent).

Everyone always forgets to mention the LG Prada. Poor little guy, first capacitive touch phone with the simple “Apple” design.

Cell phones have come a long way since their inception. It has been 41 years since Motorola first demonstrated the worlds first handheld cellphone.
