Apple considered calling iPhone the ‘Telepod’, ‘Mobi’, ‘iPad’, or ‘Tripod’, former Apple ad man reveals

9to5 Mac:

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.

I don’t think that anyone could say “I have a Tripod in mi pocket” with a straight face. Glad they went with iPhone.
