The Speculative Pre-History of the iPhone
harrymcc writes “The blogosphere is abuzz with rumors about ‘iSlate,’ Apple’s supposed upcoming tablet. It’s constructive to look back at coverage of the first iPhone in the months before it was announced. A high percentage of what was reported turned out to be hooey — as I remembered as I reviewed stories that said the iPhone would have a click wheel, a slide-out keyboard, and two batteries, and would run on an Apple-branded wireless network. I’m guessing that much of what we ‘know’ about iSlate is similarly off-base.”
