iPhone was almost called “Mobi” or “TriPod”

At an event at the University of Arizona’s Department of Marketing, former Apple advertising lead Ken Segall has shared some additional details into the naming behind Apple’s massively popular smartphone. While Apple ended up calling its industry-changing smartphone the “iPhone,” Apple considered a few other names.

I’m glad they went with iPhone.

  • studuncan

    Somehow, I seriously doubt any of these other names were really in the running for the final name.
