Check Out HTC’s “Evolution Of The Smartphone”, Chock Full Of Trash Talk


HTC’s apparently been feeling a bit nostalgic lately, and recently took a trip down memory lane for the creation of this “Evolution of the Smartphone” infographic.

It’s a nice, if brief look back at how we got to the mobile device landscape we have now. HTC can’t seem to help itself from making a few jabs at its competition along the way, even while calling out their achievements.

HTC also pokes fun at Apple, congratulating the iPhone 5 on moving up to a display “almost as big as the HTC One X” (not quite), and referencing the iOS 6 Maps fiasco. Check out the full chart below:
