Which OS was first to have a pull-down notification bar?

It's quite funny that Apple has blatantly nicked the pull-down notification bar from Android! But was Android the first to have it?

Can't think of one. There were tweaks for winmo that'd extend the task/notification-bar when tapped, and Sense/Manilla for HTC's WinMo devices also had some similar features. But built into the OS?

Android was first to have it built into the OS, AFAIK. And yes, it was nicked straight from Android when it was introduced to iOS.

Holy cr*p, actually I vaguely remember my veeeeeeery old N770 had a fancy notification bar. No kinetic scrolling, but still.... Android, you stealing slacker!
