This latest concept design is one of the better-looking ones I've seen. It supposes an iPhone with a glossy and plasticky frame, a bigger touchscreen, microSD reader, and a front-facing 2 megapixel camera. An iPhone with a microSD card...yeah right! And one day I'll be the king of all Siam.
The larger touchscreen is very possible, but the front-facing camera seems quite unrealistic. The carriers aren't ready for video-calling, especially not on the scale an iPhone with those capabilities would necessitate. In addition to that, there isn't much sign of a huge desire among rank-and-file consumers for video-calling.
