    The camera should be centered I think...why do you have it on the left? Otherwise, it looks sick!

    Don't think it's probable they'd make the camera that small. Though I don't know how realistic you're trying to be. As just a fun thing, it's neat.

    The slider's slider is orientated wrong. The clickwheel would be the "outer" part and the keypad would be the reveal, so the positions of the wheel and the pad should be reversed from where they are now. Also, vertically stacking letters is a general no-no, especially lower case ones.

    The PDA is showing redundant controls with the play/pause button on the clickwheel and on the screen.

    I also agree that the camera should be centered, and where are the speaker and microphone?

    Overall though, just an uninspired design that doesn't offer much new other than a phone-like interface clunked ontop of an iPod.

    It'd be sweet if you could center a black Apple logo on the rear surface and have the camera lens integrated into it so that it sort of wasn't that visible from the exterior. :D But I too think the camera on the back is a better idea....

    I don't really like the MacPhone idea very much (sowwies) but the MacPhone pro picture is gorgeous. :)

    I think the macphone is definetly going to have a bigger screen.

    wow,now that you think about it that way.. it does a bit:(
    i want it so you pull the click wheel down, not push it up because i saw that 4gigabyte ugly mutha nokia and i liked how it slid out that way
