iMac=Low-end Mac...but iPhone=High-end phone?

post #1 of 7

I thought the "i" prefix products were aimed at the lower-end consumer products, whereas the "Mac" designation was the "all-growed-up" category. Should the iPhone have been named the MacPhone or ApplePhone anyway?

Well, that was the case when Apple had its Four Areas of concentration... the consumer and pro versions of its laptops and its desktops. Then, over time, they added squares in the middle and then the whole squares idea was thrown out. If you'll remember it was iBook, iMac, and PowerBook, PowerMac. Now it is Macbook, iMac, and Macbook Pro, Mac Pro and then Mac Mini. Kinda got all mixed and the i prefix no longer means what it used to.
