PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In light of the jury verdict in Apple vs. Samsung, the one-liners and jokes flew back and forth. One in particular, by Dan Frakes, has been copied and pasted all over the web, and it goes like this: "When the iPhone debuted, it was widely criticized for having no buttons/keys. Now people think the iPhone's design is 'obvious'." This is a very common trend in this entire debate that saddens me to no end: the iPhone is being compared to simple feature phones, while in fact, it should be compared to its true predecessor: the PDA. PDAs have always done with few buttons.

Wow now you guys are reaching to call out the jury! Lol. PDA. The Newton could be compared to a PDA, I don't know any PDA that you were making calls on.

A PDA is not a phone, and remember the original iPhone was not much more then a phone when it came out. Being that it lacked a bunch of features.
