In previous editions of this special in which we reviewed the motives that marked different years already we have been seeing several smartphones. One of the points of inflection of the sector occurred in 2007, when Apple unveiled the first iPhone, whereas in 2008 we know that forever will be the first Android, HTC hand.
And with these starting points, the 2009 was aimed to be a very interesting year in terms of new products. Simple phones remained bestsellers, and some of them play now, but the war of smartphones was open, and all the marks had bets with which to conquer us. Meet them here.
To lift the hand who does not know any owner of a BlackBerry 8520. Although the Canadian brand had as its main niche business to business users, a BlackBerry with a full QWERTY keyboard, light and above all affordable, It was cannon-fodder to be a best seller, and it was.
With her BlackBerry triumphed among the young, seeking a phone adapted to increasing use, the chat. It lacked WiFi connectivity and the camera was not to throw rockets, but all that was the same, the 8520 swept. Until Android is put fashion, this was the preferred terminal of the youth of that time.
And a year after the first iPhone with 3 G connectivity became his successor, the 3 g. As often happens in versions of Apple devices with an “S” at the end of its name, the variation in design was invaluable, But if fundamentals such as the processor or the camera is improved.
It also increased the maximum storage up to 32 gigabytes and incorporating the control voice for the first time. In its first weekend of sales It managed to reach more than one million users, While in Spain the only way to get it was still a contract with Movistar (it would be the last exclusive operator).
And Nokia in 2009 was already fully immersed in its commitment to Symbian for smartphones, introducing more and more the capacitive screen, which replaced to those resistive that so many don’t we miss. We could therefore have featured the 5230 or the X 6, but Nokia that we remember most fondly that year is the 7230.
Really Nokia 7230 did not add any special feature that was not already present on other phones of the same brand or others, but even so was that year’s best sellers. Its sliding screen format I liked a lot, even if his camera had no flash. Another demonstration that it was not necessary to have the best specifications for music.
I would already like to HTC relive those years. His was the first Android in the market, although they also gambled by Windows, but in 2009 they launched to the market a phone curious on what design is concerned: the HTC Hero. The lower part of the casing was bent forward.
Now that the 3.5 mm headphone jack is disappearing from some smartphones, the Hero was the first HTC Android that incorporated it. In addition he was also the first Android support flash and one of the Android that most saw in Spain. Curious also your button at the bottom of rubber touch.
Sony Ericsson X 10
And the year in which Android began to be regarded as an interesting platform for many manufacturers until then they relied on Symbian or Windows, one of the first we saw to succeed, in addition to the HTC, was a Sony Ericsson, specifically the X 10.
Its appearance was very similar to the Xperia ARC that would later, and its lower keypad was simple against the most comprehensive of the HTC Hero. In its day it was the best Android from the entire range of Sony Ericsson smartphones, with a screen of four inches, with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels or an eight megapixel camera. All a beast then.
