So if the iPhone had something first it makes it somehow revolutionary but if another phone had something first, it is run-of-the mill? The iPhone had a few things first, but many phones before and after it had other things first. Some things that have now become standard on phones also (even though the iPhone didn't have it).
The iPhone 1 didn't have an app that showed travel times with a single tap. It didn't even have GPS! (Nokia's N95 did!).
Then it's shortcomings - it didn't have 3G, but that was because 3G was so expensive (so Apple decided that their users shouldn't be forced to pay such high prices?)
The N95 also had a 5MP camera (iPhone 2MP). N95 had a microSD slot, a replaceable battery, MMS, Instant Messaging, Video Calling.
The iPhone couldn't even record video, and unlike the Nokia 7650 released in 2002 you couldn't put an app on it to record video.
An N95 could do VoIP, play video through a TV, had Bluetooth stereo.
There were phones with capacitive screens and phones with full face touch displays.
Hence, it's easy to look back through the view that the iPhone first gen was revolutionary based upon features that were actually only available much later on in an iPhone.
and..plenty of phones could take normal earphones by then.
