Steve Jobs unveiled the original Apple iPhone exactly 8 years ago today, history was made


We can't talk about smartphones without mentioning the Apple iPhone, the "godfather" of an era. Hate it or love it, regardless if you are an Android devotee, a Samsung fan, swear by Windows Phone, or whatever other platform or manufacturer floats your boat, you can't deny the impact that Apple had on the smartphone industry.

Exactly 8 years ago, on January 9, 2007, Apple's CEO Steve Jobs took the stage before the public at the Macworld Conference & Expo in Moscone West in San Francisco, California. 

After quickly walking through Apple's position on the market and updating the attendees about everything Cupertino-related, Jobs transfixingly said his signature "one more thing" mantra and teased the public that he'll be treating them to not one, but three new devices - a "widescreen iPod with touch controls", a "revolutionary mobile phone", and a "breakthrough Internet communicator".

Of course, this was one device. The one and only Apple iPhone. It was not flawless, but it surely set in motion the wheels of the smartphone industry and led to its nowadays' state.
