The Apple iPhone, which started the trend of full touch screen devices, got updated to iPhone 3G and also inspired several others, like the Samsung Omnia, HTC Touch Diamond and Sony Ericsson's XPERIA X1.
Nokia launched the successor to the super hit Nokia N95 in the form of Nokia N96 and Nokia N85, whereas the N73 got successors in the form of N78 and N79, and two awesome business phones in the form of E71 and E66, among others. Motorola may have been down but not out, and to prove that point they launched the ZINE ZN5, ROKR E8 and EM30. Most importantly, we finally experienced the launch of 8 megapixel camera phones in the form of Samsung INNOV8 and Sony Ericsson C905."
