Presenting the smartphone Steve jobs said that the device joined three gadget “iPod with a big screen”, a “revolutionary mobile phone” and “breakthrough Internet Communicator”. In honor of the 10th anniversary of the smartphone CBS Sunday Morning produced a video about the creation of the iPhone.
The journalists met with David Pogom, Walt Mossberg, Steven levy and ed Beigom – four journalists who Apple in 2007 introduced the iPhone for the preparation of the review before the start of sales of the device.
“Three days later, I was ready to throw this thing out the window after trying to type on glass,” says Mossberg.
“It’s been 10 years and half of the emails I get with the signature “Sent from iPhone, sorry for typos!””, says levy.
The story also noted the Bass Oding is one of the key Apple engineers who worked on the first iPhone.
“Part of the popular iPhone features that the touch screen was particularly physics. You can thank the Bass Odinga. Thanks to him, the list continues to move by inertia when you swipe and bounces off the edges when reaching the border.
“Now that a billion people use your idea,” – said the journalist.
“A billion? It’s a lot,” laughed Oding.
“Anybody at that time thought, how big is this idea?”
“No, not at all. I’m definitely not thinking”.
the iPhone went on sale six months after presentation, which took place on 9 January 2007. It turns out that 10 years ago it was possible to announce a device and release it six months after the announcement. Today, from announcement to launch is just a week or two.
