In pictures: iPhone evolution, timeline and notable moments

With the iPhone 5S and 5C expected to hit Apple stores next week, here's a look back in time at the evolution of the smartphone that started it all.

Apple iPhone 4 - Face to Face with FaceTime Announced: June 7, 2010

Released: June 24, 2010

Notable Specs: Front-facing camera for FaceTime video calling; 5MP rear-facing camera; 3.5-inch "Retina" display (960 x 640 pixels), and Apple A4 processor.

Notable iPhone 4 fact: A day before the official release, Apple announced that its white iPhone 4 would be delayed a month, because the devices had "proven more challenging to manufacture than expected." iPhone 4 was also the first Apple device with a high-resolution "Retina" display.

Sales: Apple said it sold 1.7 million iPhone 4 devices in the three days following its launch.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
