Steve Jobs launched the first iPhone model and undoubtedly laid the foundations of modern smartphone design. But, in 1992, International Business Machines (IBM) launched a smartphone with computer features. And this was the world’s first smartphone, named IBM Simon. Note that it took time from 1993 to 1994 for this device to reach the market. However, this smartphone could not become popular due to its high price.

This brick-sized device featured a green 3-inch touch screen. And it was priced at 899 dollars i.e. more than 60,000 rupees in Indian currency.

A keypad was also provided in this device made by BelSelf. With the help of which users could also write notes if they wanted. Apart from features like sending faxes, receiving faxes, mapping and spreadsheets, gaming options were also present in this smartphone. The device was reportedly launched on 16 August 1994 and was later available in the Indian market as well.
