I found these old images from 2005 by surfing Google for images to turn into Wallpapers.

These look like early mock-ups of the iPhone. I'm not sure if these came from Apple or if they were from some other source trying to second guess what Apple was working on. Either way I thought they were cool.

I'm SO glad the iPhone didn't turn out like this... it's cool, but I like the final design MUCH better.

I'll take one of the above as well. Pretty slick but wouldn't have been half and useful as what we wound up with.

Those aren't from Apple.

Several websites held 'iPhone design contests' for people to guess what they thought the iPhone might look like if Apple actually built one. I'll admit back in 2005 I thought Apple building a freaking phone was absolutely nuts.

You can definitely see the RAZR design was influencing the market in 2005. Makes sense because it was the HOT phone that year.
