    For the record, the photos you posted are of mock-ups that fans created. They aren't official Apple prototypes or anything.

    I do agree with the point you are making though: The iPhone design is truly amazing.

    There's a good reason every manufacturer is starting to shovel a bunch of touchscreen phones on the market. Problem is, none of them have the OS. What good is a bunch of shiny hardware if it runs -- eek -- Windows Mobile? The iPhone OS leaves a lot to be desired, but it's way more advanced than anything I ever had before (a few Motorola phones). One of the first things I thought when I got one was "THIS is what I was looking for in those old school PDAs I bought a decade ago." That and "die, graffiti, die!"

    The bottom left one is a shoddy Photoshop job done by someone with an iPod Mini apparently. Thank goodness Apple has more imagination than us amateur Photoshop users. :)

    The bottom right one could've been a good start, if they launched it around 2003-2005.

    Anyone still have the iPhone wireframe from the first ever MacHeist?

    I thought that was a pretty sweet design really...

    Yep. Thank God the iPhone never lags, never spontaneously reboots, and 3rd party apps are vetted, so they NEVER cause trouble on the phone.

    When using the iPhone, one can just FEEL how advanced it is. From being able to do simple things like downloading podcasts directly over 3G to being able to listen to iTunes music wirelessly via A2DP, no other phone has an OS that can support such great functionality.

    I will be cutting and pasting this comment into a note and after it automatically syncs with my mac, saving it for posterity!
