10 Years Ago Today, Apple Reinvented the Phone

Henry Ford once said, "If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses." Steve Jobs took this to heart when creating the iPhone. It's hard to imagine life without our smartphones. And ten years ago was a defining moment in history. January 9, 2007 was the day Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone. It was a wide-screen iPod with a touch display. It was a revolutionary mobile phone. It was a breakthrough internet communicator. It broke the status quo for what a smartphone should be. Getting rid of physical QWERTY keyboards in favor of a touch screen. Combining a iPod and a mobile phone was unheard of at the time. So, happy tenth, iPhone. Here's to another 10 years.
