Just touch it: Apple iPhone (2007)

Originally launching in the US in 2007, Apple's now iconic [[artnid:187779|first iPhone]] never made it to Australia — at least officially. The original iPhone was a 2G device that had a similar frame and dimensions to newer models, but lacked basic features such as MMS messaging and video recording. In 2008, almost a year after the original hit the market in the US, the [[artnid:252856|iPhone 3G]] was released in Australian and other markets around the world, while the current [[artnid:309245|iPhone 3GS]] arrived this year. The iPhone enjoys immense popularity due to its user friendly touch screen interface and the wide range of apps available for download on the App Store.
