Steve Jobs’ iPhone introduction from 2007 event gets reimagined

Everyone remember’s the original iPhone introduction at Macworld 2007, right? “A widescreen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone, and a breakthrough internet communications device.” That was repeated a few times before he announced “Are you getting it? These are not 3 separate devices, this is one device.” The crowd explodes in excitement that Apple is – somewhat unknowingly at the time – about to completely change the way we think about our mobile phones.

The video is really neat, and is only the introduction of the iPhone and not the entire thing (that would get a little boring). Instead, it is just the exciting part of it, which I think sums up the excitement of the original iPhone announcement quite nicely. The one minute fifty-three second video can be watched above. It is a great way to realize just how far Apple and the mobile phone industry as a whole has come thus far after the announcement of the iPhone. It is truly hard to imagine where we would be today without such a device, and more importantly, without Steve Jobs.

Something else to remember, today Steve Jobs would have been 59 years old. So, happy birthday, Mr. Jobs.

What do you think? Do you remember watching the original keynote? Did you own an original iPhone? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.

    One word, “BRILLIANT!” It was technology that never existed before with a multi-touch pinch and zoom functionality on the screen that everyone and their dog has copied today. Thanks Steve, for creating the best smartphone in the world!
