Here, we take a stroll down memory lane to chart the evolution of the mobile phone, from its humble beginnings with the Motorola DynaTAC in 1983 to the Apple iPhone 3GS in 2009!
Google mobile: T-Mobile G1 (2008)
The G1 had a full-slide out QWERTY keyboard, a touch-screen interface, a trackball and a touch-based operating system that focused on user personalisation.
The resurrection: Palm Pre (2009)
Considered by many as the closest challenger to the iPhone, Palm's much-anticipated WebOS operating system has drawn many plaudits, but it remains to be seen whether this is the game breaking handset Palm needs to claw its way back into the mobile phone world.
