The birth of the iPhone
What we see here is a 2006 prototype test bad for what was to become the iPhone. Taken from a WSJ article where we get another insight into how the iPhone came into being. In 2005 Jobs gave an engineer who had been toying with the idea of a touch screen phone an ultimatum to show real progress within two weeks of the project would be given to someone else. That threat made a small team work like crazy to show their worth. Well worth a read.
