THIS is what the big unveil amounts to? I thought it was going to be an attachment that has a camera connected to the dock. But this is more or less a case with something like the Ollo Clip built in, right?

Gawd, celebrities who have money and ego to burn sure know how to waste it. No way this thing will sell enough to offset the cost of manufacturing facilities or machinery, let alone the cost of the cheap material.

Misleading comments

If you also read the Telegraph article you will also see that he mixes and matches between the "Current" model and the "Future" model.

Speaking The Daily Telegraph last week, the Black-Eyed Peas star said the first product from his new consumer electronics and app venture i.am+ clips onto an iPhone and transforms the eight megapixel smartphone camera into a 14 megapixel camera, which it is claimed dramatically enhances the clarity and definition of your photographs. ‘We have our own sensor and a better flash,” he said. “You dock you phone into our device and it turns you smartphone into a genius-phone. We take over the camera.’

This is at best misleading and misguided and at worst, just WRONG. The current model that they speak of doesn't suddenly magic up 14 Megapixels.

Maybe instead of this comment you do neither make the product or talk about it.

Will.i.am said he hoped the fact that he had made a product himself, "rather than just talking about it"

I wonder if it also works as a battery pack? I could see a lot of people ditching their DSLRs for this. Certainly has the right number of megapixels.
Not sure if serious.

Assuming that's a bluetooth keyboard, how will you type on screen when the keyboard is slid shut? It will still be connected to the phone and therefore the on-screen keyboard won't pop up.

This actually looks like a well-made bit of kit. Good to see people trying out new uses for iPhones. Not sure about the 'modern' one though, doesn't look that modern to me!

If by 'Modern' they mean '80s Vivitar Point and Shoot', I guess they nailed it.

If Apple ever made anything with gold bling that would be the time to really worry about the company.

How horrible! For the "supposed" 6MP more, I would rather keep my iPhone looking how it is!
