Episode Info:

Welcome to Episode 3 of 0G, A History of Forgotten Phones! 0G is a limited-run podcast where we look back at how weird and wonderful smartphones were back in the days before iOS and Android took over and your only option became a rectangular slab running one or the other.

0G is hosted by two people who were there: Christie Pitts (now at Backstage Capital), who started her career selling phones at a Verizon store, and Peter Rojas (now at Betaworks Ventures), founder of Gizmodo, Engadget, and gdgt.

In Episode 5 we take a look at the phones of 2007, including the LG Prada, LG Dare, LG Voyager, Blackberry 8830, the Helio Kickflip and Ocean, and the Samsung Juke. And discuss how the mobile phone industry had no idea what was about to hit them with the announcement of the iPhone this year.

Want to contact us? Christie is @imchristiepitts and Peter is@peterrojas on Twitter. We'd love to hear your thoughts on the show.
