Here we take a look at the origins of the smartphone, from its humble mobile phone beginnings to the powerful devices that reside in our pockets today.

    This is a rather lackluster infographic.  The Technology Journey section fails to illustrate how the Internet in general accelerated information dissemination in the last 20 years vs. the last 200.  Also, why on earth is Radio missing, and where would it go?  Does it belong in Music or Communication, or both?  The Network Speeds bar graph also fails to illustrate the explosion in (theoretical) available bandwidth when comparing 3G to 4G, etc.  The only part I found somewhat worthwhile was the OS usage comparison by country.
