The first smartphone

        So now you shall learn of the first smartphone ever. According to, www.wikipedia.org the first smartphone was the IBM Simon. the Company that created it was IBM. It was created in 1992. that is only about 20 years ago! Simon was about 5 inches tall an inch long and an inch wide. thats huge! thats like 3 times the size of smartphones today!

Interesting

        This paragraph is about future smartphones. The one that I am going to tell you about is the Iphone Black Hole. on the website, www.concept-phones.com it writes, apple is making a phone called the iphone blake hole. It is a projector phone. It is kind of hard to explain so heres a picture of it. So it uses holographic technology. That is insane! regular touch screen phones will be nothing once this comes out. It says it is to be realised in 2020! So only a few years from now it will come out.Apple Black Hole Concept, the iPhone of 2020? Apple Black Hole Concept, the iPhone of 2020?

        This paragraph is about how many kids have access to smartphones. According to www.marketingprofs.com, 75% of American kids under the age of 8 have access to a smartphone or ipad or tablet. That is crazy!!! I only have an ipod with no internet, no texting, and no facetime. And I don't get a phone until I’m 15! But a little 7 year old has all of that.

        Have you ever wondered what makes a smartphone smart. www.samsung.com it says smartphones are basically a tiny computer (well they are) that you can call people with play video games listen to music take pictures go on the internet and a ton of other stuff a computer can do. The only thing that makes a smartphone call a phone is it can call. So really little kids who have phones basically have their very own little computer.
