    :confused:

    sinful thoughts = buying 15 to replace it over and over when it keeps breaking, and by the time it actually exists, I'll be CFO of the company that sells it so I'll be totally rich?

    I love sinful thoughts!

    The shape and colors are quite Apple like, but Apple wouldn't make it like that, because that thing is just confusing.

    the entire thing IS an lcd display :eek:
    it's a touchscreen with virtual buttons.
    that phone is such a beautiful thing but i cant help but wonder how practical it is...

    Ooooooh... :eek: ... Damn! Then thats one sh*tty interface... Ew... And lets not go into accidental button presses... And on top of that, scratches...


    Maybe it should look just like the nano, and instead of a scroll wheel, a number pad... :confused:

    Why cant anywhere other than east Asia get any type of cool phones. I know this isn't a real phone but cant we ship the design of a Talby to the US or something.

    Or must we keep an untold monopoly on ugly @$$ phones.

    Oh and the phones that do look moderately ok cost somewhere in the range of $600. A good design shouldn't cost THAT much.

    Presumably the graphics will get a lot better once they let an artist take a crack at it... perhaps a little better layout... and then, damn, i want one.

    Apple was beat to the punch with the cell phone. They waited too long and then this came.

    now let's see if it actually hits the market...

    Its durable

    It has to be if it could survive being run over by the ugly train a couple hundred times.

    looks like a pile of **** to me.

    That is the most fugly thing I've seen so far.

    If Apple and Moto put that out I'd be forced to sue them for having to gouge my eyes out.

    Thanks alot!

    Looks ugly to me

    Whoever said it will get better looking when they let an artist get a crack at it--it was already designed by an artist! That explains why its so impractical. Is that a color screen? Why not put a splash of color in the interface, and why is the number up at the top in circles? It looks totally ridiculous.

    The concept is cool, though, and I've wondered if Apple will make a device that's all LCD, and implement the scroll wheel using touch sensitive TFT.

    By the way, did anybody read this part?

    Another cool idea, but how safe is this to be living/working/sleeping around? I wouldn't want it on my nightstand, thats for sure.

    If it IS safe, then how come we're not getting this feature on everything?

    I'd get that phone mixed up with the remotes for my portable DVD player and car CD player.

    that phone just confuses me. i cant tell where buttons end and screen begins! or is that the point? :confused:

    i think an apple phone would have to have the general nano shape, but with the buttons being perfectly round and the same colour/texture as the ipod clickwheels. a mini clickwheel at the top as a navi-button. i dont have photoshop, but im sure it can be done by someone on these forums, to make my dream come true! they can offer it in white or black.

    oh and apple.....dont let motorola make it, for god's sake!!!
