I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: Steve Jobs did not invent the smartphone. You can’t even say that Apple originated the smartphone. I had a smartphone—a Palm Treo 600—two years before the iPhone was announced. The Treo had a web browser, email, an MP3 player, a video player, applications, and a touch screen. All of the stuff the iPhone launched with.
Apple didn’t invent. They innovated. Their innovation was that their smartphone did those things well. Aside from email, the Treo very much did not.
