Did You Know That Apple Wasn’t The First To Produce The “iPhone”?

Being one of the best selling brands in the world today, the iPhones are indeed phenomenal, raking up billions of dollars in sales ‎since it’s introduction in 2007.

But it’ll interest you to know that Apple isn’t‎ the first company to produce or sell phones with the brand name – “iPhone”

InfoGear, a California-based OEM is credited for being behind the first commercially available “iPhones”. The said “iPhone” was an Internet Touchscreen Telephone that was released way back in 1998. Though not our traditional smartphone, the InfoGear iPhone was a desktop telephone that featured a black and white 640x480p touchscree‎n & 2MB of RAM.

It’s design was so futuristic, packing a touchscreen display and a slideout full QWERTY keyboard. A choice for many business executives then, it’s memory was able to hold up to 200 emails.

After Apple launched its iPhone‎ officially in 2007, it was sued by Cisco for trademark infringement (like doesn’t that sound familiar?. Lol). The case was later settled with both companies being granted the right to use the “iPhone” brand name. But then, only one iPhone exists today.. and it’s definitely not from Cisco. Lol
