Apple Exactly five years ago today, Apple officially released its entry into the mobile phone market, the iPhone. Immediately loved by customers the world over, ridiculed by the competition, and, in my book, not particularly innovative feature-wise, it changed the mobile phone industry virtually overnight. Love the iPhone or hate the iPhone, its industry-changing impact is evident.

Five years?

But... the iPhone was dead and buried. Even Microsoft held an iPhone funeral procession in Redmond.

They wrote "WINDOWS PHONE 7 OS PLATFORM Buries the Competition" in a banner in the parade. It's funny because it's not true.
