Apple John Gruber illustrates the dangers of not having a clue about history: "The utter simplicity of the iOS home screen is Apple's innovation. It's the simplest, most obvious 'system' ever designed." Thanks for playing.

Both the iPhone and the iPad were laughed on when released.

Where you out travelling the world for 2007? You forget that they were in the absolute minority. People laugh at anything that is new, as there are always these cynical sceptics.
Also iPhone did not take off before AppStore became available. And the current dominant platform follows an approach that is not like iOS(when it comes to homescreen organization).
