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.

Pfft. The Danger Hiptop ( aka Tmobile sidekick) had apps and a market to buy apps in 2003. Oh ... and the founder went on to found a different Mobile operating system called Android. While danger was swallowed up by microsoft ... resulting in the worlds most popular phones ever the Kin 1 and the Kin 2!

It’s the whole package of the p910 I am arguing for ;)

Don’t think I have ever seen a Hiptop, was it US only? I only know about it from knowledge of Danger.
