PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It might be a cliche, but sometimes, a picture says more than a thousand words. Over the years, I've often talked about how the technology world is iterative, about how products are virtually always built upon that which came before, about how almost always, multiple people independently arrive at the same products since they work within the same constraints of the current state of technology. This elementary aspect of the technology world, which some would rather forget, has been illustrated very, very well in one of Samsung's legal filings against Apple.

I do recall seeing a Nokia Communicator in some 2000-era spy film set in Europe, but I've never seen one in the flesh, so to speak.

I believe you're referring to "The Saint". In any case, a friend of mine owned one around the same time frame, it was certainly quite nifty as far as mid-to-late 90s phones went.
