The New York Times is reporting that the iPhone started its life out as a "Safari Pad". An Internet tablet if you will. Once Steve Jobs saw it, he used his panache and morphed it into an iPhone. The author also goes on to say that when he spoke to Steve Jobs at the recent MacWorld in January, he asked if there would be a larger form-factor iPod touch device. Steve Jobs replied,

"I can't talk about unannounced products."

I would personally love a tablet sized device that had Wi-Fi and a data connection a-la Amazon's Kindle. What is in the future for Apple?
