The story so far
As the market grew, the devices improved -- and formerly super-fancy features morphed into must-haves. The 4 million cameraphones in 2001 ballooned into more than 700 million in 2007, and it's getting harder and harder to find a simple non-camera phone these days. Smartphones started out as Palm (Nasdaq: PALM ) PDAs (remember those?) and early Research In Motion (Nasdaq: RIMM ) BlackBerrys, but after the runaway success of Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL ) iPhone, every handset designer wants to build one, and untold millions of consumers want 'em.
