My concept of the iPhone. Enjoy.

There is built-in bluetooth, a Firewire port on the side, a 5GB iPod drive for music/storage/voice recording/etc., a 3" color screen, scroll pad on the side, lithium polymer battery, and on screen keypad. The shell is metalic.

4" height
2.5" width
~.75" thick maximum

A little wider than a SonyEricson T300.

Back to Beige? It would be if Paul Scates had his way. This beauty include a floppy drive, legacy Mac ports, and System 7.1! Nostalgia up the ying yang. Oh and did you dig that rainbow logo? Nice touch.

Here are some pics I made in Illustrator showing my idea for a low cost PowerMac cube.

Here are some features:

  • Side ports for USB, Firewire, headphones.
  • Perfect 9" cube. Sides made of clear polycarbonate with white backing while front is aluminum.
  • Base is a 11"x11" sheet of clear polycarbonate with the corners bent downward about 1.5" to act as feet.
  • Internally, above the CD bay is one vertical 3.5" hard drive bay, leaving room for an internal power supply.
  • Below the CD bay would house the motherboard.
  • The heatsink would be positioned near the back where a fan would blow out the heat. 3 full size DIMM slots would allow for up to 1.5GB RAM.
  • An AGP slot would be to the right of the CD bay on the motherboard seeing as a 9" cube will allow about 1.5" of clearance for an AGP card. The left side would house a PCI slot.
Here are some pictures:
