    No offense - really - but I have absolutely no idea what you're trying to show here, other than that it has something to do with an iPod. Care to explain? Is it your take on the rumored new flash iPod?

    I think I prefer this ;) :) :

    A screen would be nice though.

    Did you notice? The buttons are on one side while the display is on the other. How are you supposed to see what you're doing when these essential elements are on two different sides? Not going to happen, sorry.

    Maybe something like this was closer to what you had in mind:

    Also a lack of a scroll click-wheel.

    Most likely they will use a volume side type side wheel as a click-wheel replacement. One for horizontal and one for vertical navigation. :)

    The square look has no appeal at all, sorry. The second two are much better. Not sure if I like the round or cube look better. The round one may not be as easy to carry. It reminds me of the Advair discus inhaler. :D

    Looks like an inhaler to me too! ;)

    And, BTW, the initial pic is actually of something shaped (roughly) like a disposable cigarette lighter, not a square - it shows front, back, top, and bottom views. The gray rectangle isn't part of it.

    Interesting interpretation of "firewire" then.... ;)

    no no no, that's not what i meant at all. i mean the buttons will be on the bottom, and the screen will be on the front. about the regular ipod navigation, i doubt it, it'll prolly have a ****** UI, but you never know.

    Good shot there, but I think the biggest concern would be pressing a button and watching what's going on on the screen at the same time. If you have the location / function of each button memorized, then it probably doesn't matter ... but the beauty of many well-designed products is that you don't have to memorize or know anything to use it -- the product describes itself.

    There haven't been too many positive comments in this thread, but don't feel bad. The round design posted above is by someone who makes a ton of elegant Apple product mock-ups, but I think the round design couldn't be worse: how will you be able to see the screen AND spin your finger on the wheel at the same time? You can't. Your hand will be blocking the screen.

    Anyway, just my $0.02. :)

    I think Creative has a hold of that idea since they use a vertical scrollpad/trackpad on their iPod knock-off.
