Apple s first-generation iPhone started a revolution 10 years ago today.
It seems like just yesterday that late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs walked out on stage at the Macworld conference in January 2007 and put an end to years of rumors and speculation.
More importantly, Apple put an end to overcomplicated smartphones like Symbian phones and BlackBerry handsets, shifting the industry toward a much more intuitive user experience.
Of course Apple isn t the only company that enjoyed success as a result of the iPhone s introduction.
Google, which had been developing Android as a BlackBerry clone, completely changed the direction of the platform ahead of launch thanks to the iPhone.
Samsung grew to become the top handset maker in the world thanks in large part to copying Apple s iPhone.
