PlayScreen Trivia Contest: Promo code for BounceTrap

Tricky One: What was the first iPhone.

Looking for:

1. Name of the company.

2. Brief description.

A late game is only late until it ships. A bad game is bad until the end of time.

The Linksys iPhone
The Linksys iPhone was made by Infogear in 1998 (Info gear was later bought by Cisco). It combined a phone and web browser.

The first iPhone was released by InfoGear Technology Corporation on 1998. It had a flip-lid keyboard and an LCD touchscreen. It was one of the first wave of internet appliances. Is this correct?

Billhouse you're quick.

I was going to say Cisco, handset phone to be used with computer for VOIP.
It actually was a product they had and they just added the iPhone name to it to try to keep the rights to the name so Apple wouldn't get it.

I've been away for awhile, but I'm back.
