iLounge’s Design the Next iPhone, Win the Next iPhone Contest - CLOSED

Design The Next iPhone Contest

This contest is now closed for judging. Thank you to all who entered.

You’ve seen the Free iPod Book 3.3. On June 1, 2008, iLounge will release The Free iPod + iPhone Book 4, and six lucky contest winners will be announced inside.

How can you win? Design the Next iPhone! We want to see your creative and artistic talent! Submit a brand-new artistic rendition (minimum 1600 pixels wide) of what you think the next iPhone should look like. Your image may be wholly original or based in part on iLounge photos of the current-generation iPhone or iPod family, however, originality is strongly encouraged, and no use of others’ photos or previous contest entries is permitted. Please do not overlap text on top of the image of the iPhone. iLounge’s editors will pick our three favorite concepts from the pool of valid entries. You must submit your name, e-mail address, and location (city/state/country) with your art in order to qualify.

We will be looking for six total winners for this contest—three grand prize winners will receive Apple’s next-generation iPhone, courtesy of iLounge, and three runners up will receive $100 iTunes Gift Cards. Our plan is to pick two winners with “advanced” iPhone designs, another two for “simplified” iPhone designs, and two more for funny iPhone designs. The grand prize winners will be our three favorite overall entries. Use these design ideas to inspire your work and you’ll have the best shot at winning a next-generation iPhone of your own.

Three Grand Prizes: (1) Apple 2008 model iPhone, courtesy of iLounge.
Three Runner-Up Prizes: (1) $100 iTunes Store Gift Card, courtesy of iLounge.

Here are examples of the types of entries we’ve previously seen as submissions
to our Concept Galleries: iPhone Concept art.

I would LOVE to enter the future of Iphone contest.

I have a few questions…

1. do the designs need full stats, like I don’t know, scrreen brightness etc? or can i just state the size, and obviousllly essential specs (gig, screen size, and features)?

2.  Can I draw on a piece of paper? I have no fancy program to draw with.

3. if so, do the drawings need to be on grids or paper?

thank you

I don’t care if the contest is over I have the perfect iphone idea. If this reaches Steve Jobs tell him Earl wrote it and wants to work for Apple. Everyone knows that the iphone is years ahead of its time, it is almost the perfect phone…almost. The first iphone was $600 which meant if you owned one you were somebody. Now at $200 everyone and their children have them, its ridiculous. The next iphone should stand out to make a statement that “thats the new iphone” it should have a transparent back cover so that everything inside the phone can be seen. The home button should be on the side of the phone on the bottom where the black part is on the 1st gen iphones or the sleep button could be the home button as well, press it once your home, press it twice it goes to sleep. This will free up almost a half inch of space to expand the screen size. The speaker for the ear should also be moved up a cm or two to make more room for the screen. You should be able to cancel text message as they are being sent, there is nothing worse than being mad and say “what the hell” but sending “what the he’ll”. Speakers on the top and bottom, landscape mode should be available while text messaging, full keyboard for passcode, 6.0 megapixel camera, should be able to create folders right on the phone for pictures and contacts. I would like to separate the pictures I took in Las Vegas from the ones of my family. I should also be about to separate my business associates from my friends and family contacts. Should be able to use the map for weather instead of typing in the city I may not know what the city is called but I may know where its located. Should be able to lock certain parts of my phone from others, for example I might want to let someone see my pictures but not listen to my voice mails and as nosey as people are they would try. Should be able to change my background of my icons to a picture, design,...ect. When someone is put on hold they should have elevator music to listen to, thats always nice. I have more ideas for Steve once he gets in contact with me.

1.I woould suggest to put more powerful speakers (In built) as just like that of sony ericcson. Coz after paying such huge amoount you cant enjoy the song/music withoout headphone.
2. Length is oaky but width should be reduced. (Doesn’t matter if the thickness increases)
3. More portable more feaasible to carry.
