perhaps you can identify their innovative elements from the following:

 

- a fresh appreciation of user needs

I'm sure there have been plenty but going off my head:

 

The Ipod - Took an existing technology and made it from high-tech to a common name. It didn't do anything new or unique, and from a feature standpoint is worse then a lot of competitors, but it was marketed and designed in a way that even stupid people could use them easily.

 

Motorola StarTac - Pretty much the birth of the cell phone as not just something to communicate with, but suddenly phones start becoming cool, and within a few years anyone with an old cheap cell phone almost becomes embarassed to use it in public.

 

OXO Good-grips Potato Peeler - Another product that took something that everyone used and suddenly transformed it into a useful product, showing everybody that ergonamics and design actually can apply to even the smallest most trivial things.
