Well, check this screenshot from http://design4dough.wordpress.com
It's a rectangle with square buttons that resembles any keypad ever made.
Give him some credit. The keypad is rounded with chrome edges and a slick black face. It also has buttons that do resemble colorless application icons. I definately see it but I doubt there was any inspiration here...
I can see it now Steve was watching Blade Runner and it popped into his head "hey I'd like a phone that looks like that doors key pad" Damn I wish he had been inspired by the flying cars or that I scanner thing, or those hot Replicant chicks.
Luckily they lost the huge battery pack
Hah ... I'll admit that the 'vibe' is pretty close.
Inspiration comes from a pool of many sources -- this very well may have been dug deep in Ive's subconscious somewhere without him even realizing it.
Damn all the cool stuff and hot chicks in that movie and he's inspired by a common key pad, boy he really is a geek.
When are we getting the iChick Replicant?
Agreed. And Ivy was the prime age for having his young impressionable brain tattooed with the imagery of the then newly released Blade Runner.
That said, I think Ive's designs across the board owe more to Stanley Kubrick than Ridley Scott.
Yup. I second this.
(Anyone else still waiting for AT&T video pay phones? )
to bad it's not touch screen...
Definitely a larger battery, and I only see ONE speaker! LOL
Convinced that Blade Runner came up with the idea key/touchpad? Definitely.
