Apple iPhone is ‘Invention of the Year' - TIME Mag

TIME magazine has named the iPhone "Invention of the Year."

You can love it or hate it, but the fact stays that Apple’s handset made other handset makers “think differently.” We saw such players as Nokia and Sony Ericsson unveiling their plans for the future, which are in many ways inspired by the iPhone. Hence, its no surprise Time Magazine gave the iPhone a prestigious “Invention of the year” title.

Outlined reasons are: it’s pretty, it’s touchy-feely, it will make other phones better, it’s not a phone - it’s a platform, and it is but the ghost of iPhones yet to come.

Last year's winning invention was the online video site YouTube.
