In the rules its says only one image is allowed to be entered..? By the looks of it all images submitted were considered.

And I think my phone looked better than the iPod Chat. O well.

uh with the mac phone, the camera is in the same direction as the screen.  How do you take anything but self portraits.  Over your shoulder?

Congrats to all the winners.

Before anyone goes criticizing the winners, take some time to appreciate the work they put into it and respect iLounge for judging and creating the contest.

the mac phone will have a camera in the back two.  the one on the front face is that the phone can be used for 3G video conversations…

mac phone looks good and has a brilliant idea of having front and rear camera.
It is well presented, one more turn will show the brilliant idea of having front and rear camera.
Also a baby finger clickwheel needs further clarification.

Wow. I agree, stop criticizing the winners..e.e. They won fair and square, and you shouldve known that when you entered it wouldn’t be an automatic win.

Congrats guys

I really like the iPod chat because it looks very Apple but also very different from the normal concept for what people are expecting. I love how simple it looks with the red and gree lines. Very nice

I’m always dissapointed when I see great mock-ups like these…‘cause we now know what Apple won’t make.
