    Five years ago, at the Macworld conference, Apples CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the (what Apple fanboys dub as the Jesus Phone) iPhone. It was sleek, black and simple. But it was just not a phone but something much more than thatit was the beginning of a cult, of a revolution in mobile phone history. The phone screamed Apple and came into the market with a lot of speculations and expectations from both the public and the heads at Apple. The iPhone, for one thing, was quite expensive and Apple guys weren't sure how good the phone would be for business. But iPhone proved to be an amazing and of course a revolutionary addition to the world of mobile phones, at $599, with no physical keyboard, no 3G, requirement for a PC with iTunes to set it up, a special headphone jack and a new OS (iOS), it was just not a phone, it was an experience, the great Touch and Feel Experience. People were skeptical at first. In fact, the then Microsoft CEO went as far as claiming that the iPhone was a waste of time and money and would make no significant change in the marketseems hilarious today, isn't it?

    The iPhone first went on sale five years ago today and it has made more than $150 billion in revenues.... While these numbers are certainly impressive, with companies like Samsung and their Galaxy line I'm thinking Apple is really going to have to step it up if they are going to continue seeing sales figures like these in today's smartphone market.


    What do you guys think?

    That's what they get for announcing things way before its ready just like PlayBook 2.0. Its like they throw it out there hoping people will stay. Then they have to delay again. Apple doesn't announce anything until its ready to ship. Except for the white iPhone 4.

    Not sure what your holding on to. Things will never change.
