Short Thoughts: iPhone is Ten today.

The 9th of January 2007 was when the iPhone was first announced. I remember watching the first part of the keynote, where Steve Jobs announced a ‘Widescreen iPod with touch controls‘. I had been hoping for one for so long, I was so excited to see one finally confirmed.
But then I had to go to work, and it wasn’t until I got back around midnight, that I could see what an ‘iPhone’ was.
I remember buying one from eBay not long after its June 29th launch. It even came in an AT&T bag, and using some ‘methods’, got it unlocked. I haven’t owned another smartphone since.

Reading Apple’s ‘Newsroom’ post from this morning, I believe it when they say it’s still only the start of things. We really are still closer to the starting line than the finish line ten years on.
