The iphones first idea was thought up as when steve jobs wanted to make a multi touch touchscreen device. Such as a tablet pc.
Steve jobs wanted this phone to be able to work with the internet without a mouse and an actual keyboard.
After he got a group of apple engineers they decided it would be a good idea to imply this technology to a phone
This project started in 2005 and was known as the project purple 2.
Apple secretively worked with cingular wireless now known as AT&T. Cingular gave apple the rights to make the phone how they wanted to.
This project lasted a 30 month period and cost 150 million dollars.
The design of the phone was made to have a computer in your pocket.
The size of the phone was 3.5 inches with a glass multi-touch screen. 320-480 pixels
The phone had a chrome plated metal frame which made it durable. The back of the phone was aluminum with a plastic base to get the cellular and wifi signals.
There are only 5 physical buttons on the phone which has stayed true to all models.
