The future of the iPod and the iPhone are going to rely on interface. We know this because Apple decided to create their own touch-sensitive products in the first place. New ways, at least for some consumers,to interact with their devices. The iPod Classic shows us that they've realized that their interface is aging and needs some upgrades. The iPhone took a big step forward and an iPhone Nano has the potential to add some new things as well. An older interface would not be so bad, in my opinion, if they just allowed it to be customizable. That's what I show in this version of the iPhone Nano. In horizontal mode you are able to view videos, browse music,and view photos as well as see the menu. All text is on top of translucent black boxes so that they are visible but still show your background. As shown on the first model from the left, a lot of information can be shown in an organized manner and still show off a nice screen and theme. To use this as a phone one has to turn the device vertical so that the two speakers are in proper position. Users will be able to select contacts from a regular list (but who wants to do that...)or they can use a less simple, but prettier method shown on the model in the vertical position. A contact can be chosen by scrolling through pictures of the contact in a coverflow menu at the bottom of the screen. If no photo is available, then just their name will be shown. When a person is landed on, information is shown on the other boxes displayed on the screen. A user can either touch their home number, cell phone number, or TXT to send a text message. Very simple. There's always the option to dial manually through an on-screen keyboard as well. The last model on the right shows a major film released this summer. I'm sure most of you know what it is. The home button protrudes slightly from the device and is a clear plastic showing the white square at the bottom. The hold switch is located on the bottom left of the device. The player is covered in anodized aluminum except for the thin line of chrome that travels along the edge of the device separating the from from the back. This would have to come in several colors considering the fact that it's a cellphone and because of who it would target. Surely having other colors wouldn't hurt sales.
That's about it.
