iPhone escaped being named TelePod

Apple's premier smartphone  we now know as iPhone was almost close to be called TelePod while the naming for Apple's phone was under consideration.

The revealation comes from an ex Apple ad boss Ken Segall who broke the naming story in a lecture at the University of Arizona’s Department of Marketing.

It is reported that former Apple advertising lead Ken Segall told students that TriPod, TelePod, Mobi and even iPad were all considered - before Apple boss Steve Jobs decided on the now familiar iPhone.

According to 9to5Mac, which attended the lecture, Telepod was among the front runner as it sounded similar to telephone.

Tripod was also a front runner, the lecture revealed.
'While this name did not win out, it did make a big impact on Apple’s original presentation and marketing for the iPhone,' 9to5mac said.
