I am going to talk about the creation of the smartphone and how it inspired where we are today.

Who made the smartphone?

People didn't start using the term "smartphone" until 1995, but the first true smartphone actually made its debut three years earlier in 1992. It was called the Simon Personal Communicator, and it was created by IBM more than 15 years before Apple released the iPhone.

What is the smartphone?

A smartphone is a mobile phone that can do more than other phones. They work as a computer but are mobile devices small enough to fit in a user's hand

How did smartphones cope with all that data?

Smartphones can send and receive data much faster than older phones. The industry uses different standards to label the data transmission rates. 2G was introduced in 1991. 2G means 2nd Generation. 

Where was the smartphone made?

The Simon Personal Communicator was made in the United States between August 1994 and February 1995, selling 50,000 units. The Simon Personal Communicator was the first PDA to include telephony features.
