Apple talks about designing the touchscreen for iPhone

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: 2 days, 5 hours ago

Can you believe it has been nearly 10 years since the original iPhone was released? I can, as I got my hands-on one here in Australia, which at the time was incredibly expensive and a huge process to do. The years before worldwide distribution of the iPhone, where it was limited as hell, and half the apps didn't work for me, including MMS.

Now we have The Wall Street Journal sharing a video that has three of Apple's former executives talking about the first days of designing the iPhone with Steve Jobs, with Scott Forstall, Tony Fadell, and Greg Christie taking to screen. Fadell was the Senior VP of the iPod division, where he talked of a time when Jobs introduced the executives the first demo of what would eventually turn into the touch-based iOS for the original iPhone.

 

Jobs and his team were prototyping different ways to usher in a new smartphone interface, with the first being the iPod click wheel interface which ended up turning into something truly revolutionary. Fadell was invited into a demo room to try out a new interface by Jobs, with Fadell recounting: "Steve goes, "Come over here I need to show you something." So he walked me into the room...and it was basically like a ping pong table sized demo with a projector that was projecting a Mac interface on it. And you could use your whole hand and you could touch different things on it, like it was a big big Mac".

 

"It was literally a ping pong sized multi-touch display. And he goes, "I think this is gonna solve our problem", he continued.
