PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I've kind of painted myself in a corner with that headline, because I never anticipated I would need another preview article for this project. However, thanks to all your comments on both the site and through email, the scope of this project has grown considerably. As part of this growing scope, I'm acquiring more and more devices, and yesterday, I managed to score a phone which, while almost forgotten by most of the rest of the technology press, contained two very important firsts. Not only was this the first phone with a capacitive touch screen, it was also the first phone with an interface design from the ground-up for finger/touch input. Say hello to the LG KE850, better known as the LG Prada.

I stumbled across this the other day, and was quite surprised:

Psion were also a pioneer with touchscreen phones (they produced projects with Ericsson running EPOC, the predecessor of Symbian. Acorn also had a tablet called the Newspad in the mid 90s, but it never came to market.
