Apple iPhone
  Year: 2007
  Apple's ability to rock our world through nifty gadgets should not be underestimated. Between the Apple II, the Macintosh, and the iPod, Apple is responsible for more trend-setting consumer technology than most companies.
  对苹果电脑的能力,我们不应该低估。在苹果II,Macintosh和iPod之间,苹果负责引领消费者的潮流。
  In the same vein, the iPhone goes far beyond being just a mobile telephone: It's a powerful pocket computer, a game machine, and a multimedia-playback device. Better yet, it gives you instant, high-speed access to the Web, e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, wherever you can find mobile phone coverage. In short, it's a revolutionary device, and other companies are already coming up with imitators
  同样,iPhone不只是一台移动电话:这是一台强大的掌上电脑,游戏机和多媒体播放装置。更好的是,它高速接入到互联网,电子邮件,Facebook,Twitter,和YouTube,这是一台革命性的设备。
  Notable qualities: Everything — but particularly the excellent software, the large and sharp screen, the multitouch interface, visual voicemail, the App Store ... (Need I say more?)
  值得注意的品质:一切-尤其是优秀的软件,大屏幕,多点触摸界面,可视语音邮件,应用程序商店... (我需要说更多吗?)

  Motorola Razr V3
  摩托罗拉RAZR V3
  
  At a time when most cell phones were starting to look the same, Motorola decided to break the status quo with the Razr V3, a slim, slab-like clamshell phone with a large screen, a stylish and flat keyboard, a built-in camera, and multimedia capabilities. Impressive technical features aside, you have to admit that the Razr simply looks cool (especially by 2004 standards), a fact that contributed significantly to its wide popularity.
  正当大多数手机都开始看起来一样的时候,摩托罗拉公司决定打破现状,用有着超大屏幕的Razr V3,一台平板状折叠手机(内置摄像头和多媒体功能)。除了令人印象深刻的技术特点,你必须承认,Razr手机看起来很酷(特别是用2004年的标准),大大有助于使其广受欢迎。
  Notable qualities: Stylish design, slim form, and a full set of features
  值得注意的品质:时尚的设计,轻薄的外形,以及一套完整的功能

  T-Mobile Sidekick/Danger Hiptop
  T - Mobile搭档/危险嘻哈
  At the time of its release in the United States, the T-Mobile Sidekick (also known as the Danger Hiptop) quickly became the text-messaging addict's dream machine. This innovative smartphone incorporated a novel design with a large LCD screen that rotated and flipped to reveal a generous QWERTY keyboard.
  在其在美国发行时,T-Mobile搭档(也被称为危险嘻哈)迅速成为短信上瘾者的梦想手机。这种创新的智能手机结合了一种新颖的设计,可以使大尺寸的液晶屏幕旋转和翻转成QWERTY键盘。
  The Sidekick line, with its distinctive full-reveal keyboard, persists today, having influenced many similar hide-and-reveal keyboard designs since its emergence in 2002. These clever and attractive designs helped fuel text messaging's popularity beyond the tie-and-Frappuccino BlackBerry set, extending it to the youth of the world.
  由于其独特的键盘,“搭档”今天仍出现在市面上,并影响了很多类似的键盘设计(自从它于2002年出现以来)。这些聪明和有吸引力的设计,加速了短信的普及,扩展到青年的世界中。
  Notable qualities: Large, flippable screen; relatively uncramped and full-featured QWERTY keyboard
  值得注意的品质:大屏幕,全功能的QWERTY键盘。

  Sanyo SCP-5300
  三洋SCP - 5300
  
  年份:2002
  Year: 2002
  
  Who would want a camera in their cell phone? When news of such combination devices trickled over from Japan in the early part of the decade, the idea seemed silly and excessive to some people. In 2002, Sprint and Sanyo released the first American cell phone with a built-in camera, the SCP-5300 — and the public went crazy for it.
  谁想要在手机里装一台相机?对一些人来说这似乎是愚蠢的想法。 2002年,斯普林特公司和三洋公司发布了美国第一台内置摄像头的手机(SCP - 5300)—公众为它而疯狂。
  The camera phone became a bona fide cultural phenomenon, allowing the average Joe to quickly and personally share both mundane and earthshaking events with the rest of the world. Today, camera phones are so common that we don't call them "camera phones" anymore.
  Notable qualities: First U.S. mobile phone with an integrated camera; color screen, clamshell camera phone design
  拍照手机成为真正的文化现象,允许老百姓快速地与世界分享惊天动地的事件。今天,拍照手机是很平常的,我们在也不说“拍照手机”了。
  值得注意的品质:美国第一台装有摄像头的手机,彩色屏幕,翻盖手机。

  Year: 2002
  
  The BlackBerry brand began in 1999 as a simple two-way pager, but it morphed into a line of full-fledged smartphones in 2002 with the BlackBerry 5810, the first of the series to include integrated cell phone support. Thanks to top-of-the-line mobile e-mail and text messaging (the QWERTY keyboard didn't hurt either), BlackBerry phones soon became indispensable tools for businesspeople and other professionals.
  黑莓品牌始于1999年,是一台简单的双向寻呼机,但它于2002年成为全面的智能手机(黑莓5810)。多亏了顶级的移动电子邮件和短信,黑莓手机很快成为商人和其他专业人员不可缺少的工具。

  Not too long ago, WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) was a huge deal. The mobile phone industry designed WAP to allow Web access on simple devices with limited processing power and displays, like cell phones circa 1999 to 2002. Instead of a rich graphical experience, users would see a stripped-down, typically text-only subset of the Web.
  不久以前,WAP(无线应用协议)是一笔大生意。移动电话行业设计了WAP,使用户可以用简单的设备(如手机)上网访问。用户会看到精简的,典型的纯文字网页。
  In our present age of smartphones with full-featured browsers, large screens, and beefy CPUs, WAP has quickly become a relic of the past.
  在当今的智能手机时代,手机有功能齐全的浏览器,大屏幕,和CPU,WAP已经迅速成为过去。
  Notable qualities: World's first WAP-capable mobile phone; nifty sliding keypad cover
  值得注意的品质:世界首台WAP功能的手机,漂亮的滑动键盘盖。

  Nokia 8810
  Year: 1998
  
  诺基亚8810
  年份:1998
  
  In the earlier years, all cellular phones shipped with external antennas that stuck out in aesthetically unpleasing ways. Nokia engineers found a way around that problem by designing a flat, plate-like antenna that could hide inside the body of a cell phone. The result was the Nokia 8810, the first true "candy bar" phone in the modern sense. This small, compact, non-clamshell design soon became standard for many Nokia handsets; you rarely see an external cell phone antenna these days.
  在早些年,所有装有外部天线的手机在在审美上都是不好的。诺基亚的工程师找到了解决问题的方式(设计了可以藏在手机机身里的天线)。诺基亚8810,第一台真正有现代意义的“直板”手机。结构紧凑的直板设计很快成为许多诺基亚手机的标准,今天你很难看到一台外接天线的手机。
  Notable qualities: First cell phone without an external whip or stub antenna; first "candy bar" phone
  值得注意的品质:第一台没有外置天线的手机,第一台“直板”手机

  Nokia 9000i Communicator
  Year: 1997
  
  诺基亚9000i通讯
  年份:1997
  
  Though the Nokia 9000i wasn't the first-ever smartphone (many people give that honor to the IBM Simon), it marked the real beginning of our modern smartphone era.
  诺基亚9000i虽然不是第一台智能手机(许多人把这个荣誉给了IBM的西蒙),但是它标志着现代智能手机的时代的开始。
   The 9000i truly was a pocket computer and a cell phone rolled into one, with an Intel 386-derivative CPU and 8MB of RAM. The phone's physical configuration was novel at the time: Users could open the 9000i in a horizontal clamshell fashion to reveal a wide LCD screen and a full QWERTY keyboard. When folded, it resembled an ordinary cell phone.
  9000i是集袖珍电脑和手机于一身的手机,带有英特尔386 -衍生CPU和8MB 随机存储器。这台手机的物理配置在当时是新的:用户可以以横向翻盖的方式打开液晶宽屏幕,和一个完整的QWERTY键盘。折叠时类似于普通手机。
  The 9000i could send and receive faxes, text messages, and e-mail, and it also had (extremely) limited Web access through 160-character SMS messages. And like any self-respecting smartphone, it shipped with a full complement of PDA-like organizer capabilities.
  Notable qualities: First Nokia smartphone; first modern PDA/cell phone combo; mobile Internet connectivity
  9000i可以发送和接收传真,短信和电子邮件。和任何智能手机一样附带PDA能力。

  Motorola StarTAC

  Year: 1996
  
  In 1996, Motorola further shrank its line of pocket cell phones, producing the 3.1-ounce StarTAC — which immediately proved popular and influential.
  1996年,摩托罗拉公司进一步缩小了手机的生产线,生产了3.1盎司的StarTAC。
   The StarTAC expanded on the partially collapsible design of its precursor, the MicroTAC, by allowing users to fold the phone in half when they weren't talking on it. We now call this design "clamshell," for its resemblance to the way a clam opens and closes. The StarTAC's general design was widely imitated, and a large percentage of mobile phones still use it today.
  StarTac扩展了前身MicroTAC的可折叠设计,允许用户将手机折叠,当他们不打电话的时候。我们现在将这个设计称为“蚌壳”,因其与蚌的开关方式相似。StarTac的设计被广泛模仿,今天很多手机仍然使用这种设计。
  Notable qualities: First fully "clamshell" mobile phone design; smallest and lightest mobile phone at its release
  值得注意的品质:第一台完全的“翻盖”手机,在其发布时体积最小,重量最轻。
