The word "iPhone" rolls off the tongue these days, but Apple's smartphone could've wound up rocking a very different moniker.
According to former Apple advertising guru Ken Segall, Apple toyed with a number of possible names before settling on "iPhone" – including "TelePod," "Mobi," "TriPod," and, oddly, "iPad."
The reasoning behind some of the names makes more sense than others – "TriPod" refers to the iPhone's combination of phone, internet device and iPod skills, while "TelePod" sounded like a futuristic version of a telephone, while also referencing the iPod.
