One that can run applications, multiple programs at once, (also calendaring etc), multimedias (such as video and audio)

Nokia and Ericsson where the first two smartphone makers

A phone is only as smart as the person using it so a lot of phones are dumb, especially if you think it is in anyway smart.

The etymology of dumb-phones is a hotly debated topic in hotukdeals.com academic circles. Opinions are plentiful, but a general consensus is that it's an anachronistic term used for phones before the era of the emergence of smart-phones. Some historians date this all the way back to the end of the last decade, 2007, when a certain fruit company decided to release a phone that would break away from the norm and form factor of phones produced up until that point. A phone that would challenge dogma and ensue a cut-throat war between giants. It was the iPhone. It started a religious cult whose adherents were coined with the term fan-boys, by theologians. To distinguish themselves from the peasants, they started to call the peasants' phones: "dumb-phones", or in Latin "phone mutus". This created a schism and a mass conversion has swept the western hemisphere ever since and has reach worldwide, it's irreversible.

The original iphone wasn't a smartphone, it was a mixture of both mostly a dumbphone.. But apple fans will lead you to believe otherwise.

Oh i can add widgets to the smartphone Monika, as nokia was one of the first to use them..
