    Default Softbank CEO: Steve Jobs Working on Next Apple Product The Day Before His Death


    Even in death, the late icon of Apple - Steve Jobs - is living up to his reputation as the hardest working man in technology.

    In the weeks the preceded his passing, we all heard reports that Jobs worked full days right up until his August resignation as CEO of the tech giant he co-founded a quarter-century ago. But according to a new revelation from the CEO of Japanese carrier Softbank, Jobs was working tirelessly until practically the moment of his unfortunate passing.

    "I visited Apple for the announcement of the iPhone 4S at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California," Son reveals in new comments that have come to light Wednesday in PC Magazine. "When I was having a meeting with Tim Cook, he said, 'Oh Masa, sorry I have to quit our meeting.' I said, 'Where are you going?' He said, 'My boss is calling me.' That was the day of the announcement of the iPhone 4S. He said that Steve is calling me because he wants to talk about their next product. And the next day, he died."

    Naturally, there was no elaboration on the nature of the "next product" that Steve Jobs was working on. But in recent days, we've heard more and more about the extent to which Steve Jobs was involved with planning future generation Apple products, including next year's iPhone release. In the wake of these insightful comments from the CEO of Softbank, it now appears even more credible that Steve Jobs' hands-on work will be present in the next iPhone model that reaches consumers.

    Thanks you so much I was so confused with this extreme error. #facepalm
    Yeah, you'll be the coolest person in the room when you pull one out and show it around, but that gets old fast when three other people have them and one person somehow has one that glows in the dark.

    There are a number of reasons why Steve Jobs would call Tim Cook on the launch date of the iPhone 4S. And I would imagine Son would not have been privy to the true nature of that call. However, the theory that says Son is spreading this in an effort to assist Apple with future marketing is absurd to say the least.

    Really? Makes perfect sense to me. Look how many people said they would buy the 4S because it was the last iPhone released that Steve worked on. Then the media releases started coming forth that Steve worked on the iPhone 5 and now this mystery device is said to have his essence on it. Sorry, but I believe they will use the fact that Steve may have worked on it to promote sales of said device. Maybe not directly, but it will be implied.

    Obviously Mr. Jobs was working on the next iPhone. You think it took any brain power to upgrade the iPhone 4 to the A5 chip? All those engineers and designers were hard at work prototyping, testing, and re-testing. New materials, shaving off weight, refining the design... Apple puts a lot of work into their phones (despite antennagate). They've probably been working on the iPhone 5 since before the iPhone 4 even hit the market.
