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.

Though, I don't recall seeing a touch version of a Symbian phone until around the time the iPhone was revealed.

Nokia didn't have them, but Sony Ericsson did - P800, P900 and P910, touchscreen phones using Symbian UIQ. The first one was released in 2002. The interface was primarily for a stylus, not fingers, but still.

could be because symbian inherited the stylus from epoc ;)
