For me, it was pinch and zoom. That's the one thing I envied on the iPhone (that I didn't have on my Treo), the one thing I never saw on anything else prior (though it may have been), and the one thing that made me think that a phone could replace a lot of the things I regularly do on a computer.

I think the bottom line is, no one can claim to being "the one" on any of this. Palm changed the PDA game by making a popular PDA that could have apps added to it easy (they also made it easy to sync other calendar and email information). Handspring/Palm/Whoever changed it more when they added a phone to that PDA. Apple changed it again when they added a better interface, and tied it all to the most popular music device out there. Then yet again when they offered a centralized store for applications. Google really mixed things up when they offered a powerful OS that was free to the hardware mfgs.
That's all good innovation, but it truely evoluation and innovation, not invention (none of the companies I mentioned invented the technologies I mentioned, they merely improved them).
So, bringing it all back around to the topic, I believe we're about to evolutionized, and revolutionized again.
In just shy of three weeks.
