    it looks like a early (what would be the) "IPhone" by product Designer Wolfgang Feierbach anyone know if apple bought his licenses?

    as F.A. Hayek said "you can't predict where innovation will come from"

    "The licenses have been purchased by several big telecom companies with the promise to be in use for everybody by the end of 2003."

    note the base and buttons in relation to the ipad / charging base (although a design like that my be simply logical)

    it looks nothing like the iPhone, it looks like something they thought the future would bring in the 1950s

    Please, does anybody know what's wrong? My home button has randomly started just not working, haha. The touchscreen is still messed up at the top.

    Is it because I'm missing some of the screws? If so, where can I find replacement ones? I've searched all throughout Google.

    hahaha thats what i thought, but I thought it's from the 60s then I saw 2003 and thougt wtf this thing looks like sh#it, and nobody cares that he licensed this piece of sh#t, the studies from the 60s looked million times better than this, nothing to see here.
