Product Description

Product Description

This tome is a short history of the short history of the smartphone from its archaic beginnings in the early 1990's to the launch of the iPhone in 2007 which resulted in the smartphone becoming available to the general public, through to the present day. It examines the mind blowing numbers of the sales of smartphones and the related products. The role of Apple Inc. is also closely looked at as the company had a major impact on the exploding popularity of the smartphone. Some of Apple's competitors are also examined including the successful ones and the not so successful. No record of the history of the smartphone can be written without the inclusion of the so called "Mobile device patent wars", the legal battles that have resulted in billions of dollars in legal fees and billion dollar payouts. The final part of the book looks at the future of the smartphone and more importantly the future of some of the company players in the smartphone market. This sometimes serious sometimes humorous account of approximately 15,000 words is handy reference for anybody who has a serious attachment to their smartphone and wants to find out about a bit of its ancestry, or for those who are thinking about it.
