Invention of iPHONE (2007) (Apple adds capabilities to the cell phone)

Announced in January 2007 and eagerly awaited, the Apple iPhone could play music, take photographs, browse the internet, send e-mail, play movies and store upto 8gigabytes of information.  It also had Wi-Fi capabilities, a calculator, calendar and notepad and operated via a nifty touch screen mechanism and it could make a telephone call.

With its large screen, lack of buttons and sleek appearance, the iPhone stood out in design terms alone-unlike its competitors, it did not look like a phone.  What is more, the touch screen was designed to be operated by a finger, so it was no longer necessary to find the stylus required by other models.

However the iPhone did not perform as well as expected, with Apple taking only a 5% share of the worldwide smartphone market.  This was in large part due to the initial retail price of $599, later reduced to $399, much to the annoyance of early purchasers.

In July 2008 Apple released its new improved and cheaper iPhone 3G, which could exploit the faster 3G networks.  As for the inventors of the iPhone, Aplple’s CEO Steve Jobs heads the author list of the patent, although many Apple employees were involved.
