Happy 4th Birthday, iPhone! [Infographic]

Happy 4th Birthday, iPhone! [Infographic]

To mark the fourth anniversary of the original iPhone, Mashable has put together an incredible infographic covering the four years of iPhone. You can see it below, and it really puts into perspective what a momentous event the release of the first iPhone was.

In many ways, it’s hard for me to remember my first iPhone without wincing a bit — no apps? Only 4GB of storage? —but Mashable has it dead right when they say “when we look at the mobile industry, there is a very clear line between what happened before June 29, 2007, and what happened after.”

Although it seems antiquated now in a lot of ways, the original iPhone is easily the singly most important cell phone of the last twenty years.

Happy Birthday, iPhone, and thanks.
