Before the iPhone, Steve Jobs had in mind the "Mac Phone"

Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs and John Sculley partners shared in a new interview interesting trivia about the company's past. She stated that in 1984 Jobs was taken by the idea of a particular product, the "Mac Phone".

The "Mac Phone" was the name of a hypothetical device, a smartphone to be precise, which used the same operating system on your Mac. The name then spoke very clear.

Sculley said they understood that the smartphone would become the "next big thing" after helping to develop the platform Apple Newton in the 80s and 90s, but Jobs was already steps in the right direction, imagining just a "Mac phone".

Sculley, having studied art, he drew a mockup, which were clearly made changes in the style of Jobs. The "Mac Phone", however, never saw the light.
