TOKYO -- Apple's iPhone has become a cradle for entire new industries in its 10 years in people's hands, bringing features like mobile internet connectivity and cameras into everyday lives and upending traditional orders of business.
In January 2007, the late Steve Jobs -- then Apple's renowned CEO -- told a San Francisco tech conference he had three products to introduce: a portable music player with touch controls, a "revolutionary" mobile phone, and a "breakthrough" internet communications device. He strung the crowd along for a moment, repeating the three products, then: "Are you getting it? These are not three separate devices. This is one device, and we are calling it iPhone," he finished to waves of applause.
