PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Jobs called Android a 'stolen product', but theft can be a tricky concept when talking about innovation. The iPhone didn't emerge fully formed from Jobs's head. Rather, it represented the culmination of incremental innovation over decades - much of which occurred outside of Cupertino." Nothing particularly new in there for regular OSNews readers, but still handy to have it in one place.

Yeah, Apple doesn't throw every imaginable bell & whistle into their products, and that's why I have an Android phone ;) But they said, 'Hey, if you want to build a capacitive touch smartpohone, here's how to do it', and their competitors obviously listened.

Yeah, but didn't LG get there first?

I wont pretend to have used the LG Prada, but from all accounts I've read, it sounded very much like the first iPhone before the iPhone.
