Look, I had a HTC Universal which was released two bloody years before the iPhone. It was, of course, thicker, due to it having a pivot screen and a physical full QWERTY keyboard. Just without these the size would be the same. But that HTC phone had a somewhat larger display (and with higher resolution at that) and an interchangeable battery and a SD card slot.

iPhone was a downgrade to what was possible at the time.

With fast networks it's even possible that the insurance companies could bid on outcomes as the accident was happening. Theoretically my insurer could throw my car into a ditch to avoid damage to a bmw coming the other way.

I might get to see the first car get diverted into a schoolbus to avoid a 50-million-dollar superduperhypercar. I'll have to dress for the occasion with my best fingerless gloves and head-worn goggles.
