This infographic explores the early years of smartphones and the rise of the iPhone56
Depending on your age, you might have witnessed the rise and fall of certain manufacturers, as well as the gradual shift towards more uniform, less discerning from one another smartphones. We've already made several picks of the more notable smartphones from the early years of the industry, as well as some of the more unique and distinct devices of the "classic period". Most devices were different, emphasized on a different bevy of features, and the bigger portion among them provided a rather distinctive user experience. Then Apple created the iPhone and the beginning of the end of the "classic era" commenced.
Right below you'll find a neat infographic that explores the first years of the fledgling smartphone industry and the rise of Apple's most successful product ever.
Thanks for the tip, Dave!
