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.

Thank you. Exactly. Just in this case WHO would compare a camery to a motel T?? No one. Yes literally they are both cars, but no one would look at the two and compare them.

Same with a PDA and the iPhone. Which is why the iPhone and Android phones are very popular and most PDA's were not.
