Steve explains that Apple never intended to build the iPhone. Instead, Jobs and his engineers set out initially to build a tablet PC. But Jobs told Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher at AllThingsD's d8 conference in 2010 that he was inspired to go down a different path after he began playing with the user interface on the prototype tablet. "I thought, 'My god, we can build a phone out of this," he said. "And I put the tablet project on the shelf because the phone was more important."
