But what about Windows? Windows 95 took the computing world by storm with its improved graphical user interface (GUI), and the earliest versions of Internet Explorer (who remembers MS Chat? Anyone?)
Anyways, have you ever wondered what life would be like if Windows 95 also coincided with the launch of a crazy, primordial smartphone? That's what Behance designer Henrique Perticarati did when he created this fun, retro-style WinPhone 95 concept, available to browse on Behance.
The WinPhone 95 is a chunky phone, rocking a badass 90's Sony Mavica camera lens and some epic ports, including a dedicate parallel port for printing, full VGA and high-speed ethernet. With support for Windows 95 staples like Notepad, Briefcase, and Phone Dialler, you'd be able to be productive like a boss, a 90's boss, rocking full Microsoft Office squashed into a svelte, almost-pocketable device. And hey, it even comes with a trackball.
The WinPhone 95 is a bit of fun (and probably quite impossible with the technology available at the time) but it's interesting to ponder what could have been had Microsoft positioned its mobile hand a little better, all those years ago.
