my Samsung Omnia did not have a Headphone Jack & neither did the Samsung Black Jack. There were many phones back in the day that did NOT have 3.5mm Headphone jacks. Hell at one time all there was were 2.5mm Jacks. Apple is Hardly the First but as with many things because of the way Apple advertises and Draws attention many think they are the first. Like these "Simply Magic" Commercials riding in the Rain. Um NOT the first that could get wet. They were the First to Make you your phone look like crap using Glass on Both Sides so when you dropped it it was totally cracked. I give them that.
