quote: The photo is misleading - on the Galaxy S, the photographer loaded the Applications menu, but they showed the home screen on the iPhone. Not exactly an honest comparison.
quote: I know this will disappoint the people at Apple, but I think the idea of lots of icons on your desktop is a sign of weakness and inefficiency, less so on a smartphone, but definitely on a computer. Looking at what they've got on the iPhone, I would cull at least half of those icons and put them on another desktop (and why do you need a compass and a map on the same desktop?)What I think you should have is only the ones you actually use on a more or less regular basis on "a desktop" screen, and then most of them don't need to actually be on your "home" desktop.

quote: The first PDA was released in 1986 by Psion, the Organizer II. Followed by Psion's Series 3, in 1991, which began to resemble the more familiar PDA style. It also had a full keyboard.  The term PDA was first used on January 7, 1992 by Apple Computer CEO John Sculley at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, referring to the Apple Newton. In 1996, Nokia introduced the first PDA with full mobile phone functionality, the 9000 Communicator, which grew to become the world's best-selling PDA. The Communicator spawned a new category of PDAs: the "PDA phone", now called "smartphone". Another early entrant in this market was Palm, with a line of PDA products which began with the March 1996 Pilot 1000.
