    It’s today, 15 years ago, that Steve Jobs announced the iPhone on the stage of MacWorld Expo (2007-01-09).

    Happy 15th anniversary to the iPhone (2G)!

    I purchased the original and still have it. I remember arguing with people who said it’s wouldn’t survive.

    “Television won't be able to hold on to any market it captures after the first six months. People will soon get tired of staring at [it] every night.”, Darryl Zanuck, head of 20th Century-Fox, 1946.

    I remember this like yesterday, 15 years!? -smartphone industry has changed dramatically since then.
    Not only the smartphone industry, ICT and even the world as a whole.

    I was with Verizon at the time using an LG Chocolate (then a Chocolate 2 after that) and I didn't even give the iPhone a second thought back in 2007 since it was only available on AT&T at the time.

    How time flies, I still remember buying the original silver aluminum 2G iPhone when it was first introduced back in the day.

    I was using a Blackberry at the time and was also playing around with the original Nexus One phone. The rest is history.
