HISTORY: Remember the iTunes Phone...? (video)

Today we patiently await the latest and greatest iPhone, a device that officially brought Apple into the mobile phone arena in 2007... but did you know that Apple had their influence on the mobile market in collaboration with MotorolaThe device was called the ROKR and was introduced as the iTunes Phone back in 2005. 
Watch the intro keynote below with Mr. Steve Jobs... 

Although in the end, the ROKR wasn't a total success for Apple... 
the design/concept did get the public familiar, aware and comfortable with the notion of Apple moving into the mobile phone market. And sure enough, mobile phones as we know it changed forever with the introduction of the first gen iPhone in 2007
