Technologies and Protocols in a Smartphone.
I’m compiling this list to demonstrate many (not all) of the great technologies that are employed in current smart phones. If you compare this list against the supposedly innovative contributions from Apple, I wonder which will be seen as the greater contribution and of greater value. I suspect that most, if not all of Apple patents are useless without these underlying technologies. Note that Apple is not credited in ANY of these technologies. Please correct me if I’ve overlooked an Apple contribution of significance.
Patents and/or base components
Protocols / RFC’s
