The Motorola ROKR E1
If you think Apple nailed it with the original iPhone, it’s worth remembering that wasn’t its first kick at this can. Although the company wisely kept its logo off it, Apple was integral to the 2005 ROKR phone — the first cell phone to be integrated with Apple’s iTunes. Apple CEO Steve Jobs even introduced Motorola’s (NYSE:MMI) creation on stage.
With a limit of 100 songs and Cingular exclusivity, the ROKR E1 was widely panned.
