15 Years of Android

Here is one interesting article on Android smart phone history:

The first Android is 15 years old, and it is the opposite of everything we want in a smartphone today

The HTC Dream / T-Mobile G1 is fifteen years old as of September 23. This first Android phone was launched in 2008 as the Dream in Europe, then a few weeks later as the T-Mobile exclusive G1. Looking at the phone now, it’s symbolic of Android’s promise, and endemic of everything that has gone wrong since the Apple / Google duopoly of the smartphone world took hold.

It’s such a compilation of bad smartphone ideas that it’s essentially the antithesis of everything we expect from the best smartphones today.
