Have you ever seen photos of cars from the early 20th century where they haven't figured out how cars should look? Well the early 2000's were the same with phones. Until the first iPhone came out companies knew that phones would be different but hadn't figured it out yet.

@qwazix To be fair the article I got the pictures from was about Nokia innovation. You can also look at the Motorola Razr phones. It was just an odd time for phones.
