N95 arguably the first smartphone?

You really need to brush up on your phone history if you think the N95 was anywhere near the first smartphone.

The Nokia N95 was unveiled on September 26, 2006, meanwhile the Palm Treo 180, a GSM phone that had a touchscreen (admittedly only monochrome), could do email, had an internet browser etc, was released in 2002.

Also the Japanese had a more limited form of smartphone as early as 1999.
