We still need to wait and see the turn of events.
Unconfirmed reports suggest that Apple’s iPod like phone which was rumoured sometime ago will be available for purchase in early 2007.
Apple has recently placed an order for over 12 million iPhones.

The case of the phone is made from Gold and African Blackwood, which age is more than 200 years. Every Gresso phone is unique and singular. Two identical phones do not exist, as well as in the nature there are no two identical trees.

BenQ – Siemens have come up with a sleak handset which would define the future of mobile technology. The handset called Black Box is basically a huge screen – thats all. One huge screen which transforms to your needs. In simple words a touch screen which would sport the look of the function you would require to do.
The above pics show some of the available functions. 1) A calculator 2) FM radio (I like the iPod kinda tuner and volume control) 3) The normal cellphone 4) A game where you find a dolphin escaping a bath tub hole… or something to that effect. This design won the best design award in a Japanese Design contest. Its a pity that BenQ is bankrupt and they cant take this further. I hope Apple takes a cue and goes ahead with such designs.
