My First Smartphone

Source: The secrets of the first real smartphone, with Dieter Bohn

Springboard is the story of a company called Handspring. This was one of the very early companies to try and make one of the very first smartphones. It had a storied legacy, it had genius founders, and it had a nonstop stream of corporate catastrophes that prevented it from being successful. The long and the short is the story of innovation and a scrappy startup trying to do something incredibly ambitious, but there were many reasons why it was not destined to succeed.

I was all in when these came out, and am excited to watch this documentary from The Verge.
