Description

New-in-box, factory sealed example of the original iPhone

Unopened first generation original Apple iPhone, Model A1203, Part No. MA712LL/A (8GB), Serial No. 84751T1BWH8. The box features a life-size image of the iPhone with thirteen icons on the screen, indicating that it is from the later production run of original iPhones; the 13th icon, for iTunes, was introduced to the packaging in late 2007. In brand new, factory-sealed condition.

‘iPhone is a revolutionary and magical product that is literally five years ahead of any other mobile phone,’ Steve Jobs said during his keynote speech that introduced the innovative product. He was right. Developed in secrecy, the original iPhone is the smartphone that transformed the industry, revolutionizing cellphone design as one of the first 'slate' form factor phones. The iPhone removed nearly all physical controls in favor of an easy-to-use capacitive touchscreen interface. It put the internet into our pockets with the first full-featured mobile web browser, and essentially launched the market for apps with the introduction of the App Store, making third-party applications easy to access and download. The iPhone ushered in the modern age of the smartphone and catapulted Apple to the top of the charts as one of the world's most valuable companies.
