Wizzy Active Lifestyle Telephone for wired networks
Apple introduced W.A.LT. at 1993's MacWorld Boston but never made it to the public. Now a collector is selling his prototype.
We are bringing you here you a piece of Apple's history and a curiosity new that most of you doesn't know (Me neither). It appears that Apple, designed a device which may be considerated the precursor of the actual iPhone. The name was W.A.L.T , acronym of Wizzy Active Lifestyle Telephone and it was intended to wired telephone networks, not for cellular ones. It was running Mac OS 6.0.8 and featured a high-resolution touch screen LCD w/ stylus, hand writing recognition, fax, address book, caller ID, online banking, speakerphone, message pad, and personalized ring tones.
Apple introduced it in the 1993's MacWorld event but the device never made it to public release. Just a few advanced prototypes where made and one of them is now on sale on eBay.
Here is what the seller puts in the description:
