The Smartphone age has been around for a few years now, and there are so many different phones to pick from, from the Apple iPhone 4 to the HTC Evo, and Motorola Droid 2, just to name very, very few. But there were two of them that started it all. Those two phones are none other than the HTC T-Mobile G1, and the Apple iPhone (1st Generation).
HTC took a huge leap of faith back when it released it’s G1 for T-Mobile by being among the very few (if not the first) to use Google’s new mobile phone OS, Android. Now Android has evolved into so much, and I’m positive that skeptics back then thought that it would fail, and just tank out. But look at it now. With the exception of a few phones, virtually all of the modern day HTC phones run Android. Or Windows Phone 7…..which isn’t particularly a good OS as of the time being. But that’s a whole different post.
Apple took a leap of faith in the Smartphone industry back in 2007 when it released it’s first generation phone, the iPhone (commonly called the iPhone 2G today). It ran a mobile-fied version of OS X, and they did do a very good job at it. The UI is very simplistic and easy to pick up on. Anywho, the iPhone was a huge success, and they have released a total of 5 iPhones at the time of this writing. (iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS, 4(GSM), 4(CDMA).
