A time before Android

James Rosewell writes:

Whilst flicking through my drawer full of old handsets I thought back to a time when Apple produced a new MP3 player, newspaper editors didn't know what a smart phone was, and Android was only a press release. A quick flick through YouTube threw up the following interview with Microsoft's Steve Balmer offering his thoughts from this time.

Two years later and both Microsoft and Symbian are playing catchup. For the sake of the mobile industry lets hope they don't make too many more mistakes. A two-horse race would be very boring.
