Some Time Ago
Today’s smartphones have become little computers, able to do everything from surfing the internet, playing games to taking pictures and communicating with others. This past decade, smartphones have been advancing at a rapid pace but as time progressed, innovations seemed to be slowing down.
The first smartphone ever created was the IBM Simon back in 1992 and it is considered the first smartphone to ever be produced. Technically the device is a PDA with included telephony features. It was bulky and the battery lasted for about an hour which was a major downside. During the same time, flip phones where gaining popularity, dus led to the IBM Simon’s demise, just a few months after being released.
