In 2001: Handspring Edge announced

I did like the Handspring devices, and although I never owned an Edge it was a really interesting step forward especially given how modern devices have got thinner and thinner. Handspring were really ahead of their time. It's such a shame that they didn't survive.

In 2003: Samsung introduces SGH-i500 (GSM/GPRS smartphone; OS5.2 PXA262 300MHz processor)

I have to admit to knowing very little about these devices. It interests me that Samsung never really developed their own OS and have a history of licensing other people's.
