This is my concept phone,
I made it after I got annoyed at all the useless features on my phone (last night).
This phone can only be used to call with, no sms, mms, camera or garage opener.
Im not sure if all the componnets needed can fit in my tiny phone, but hey its a concept modell.
Explaining the button system, hmm when you but your fingertip (tumb) in the grove on the 123 button,
you get 1 by manipulateing it to the left, 3 to the right and 2 by pressing the button down (if this dont explain it well enough I hope the picture will fill in the gaps.
the big silver button on top releases the spring loaded display to get called ID and to recieve you press it again while the display is out, to hang up a call you simply close the display by pushing it in (and loading the spring again).
The display is a lcd of the old calculator type whitout the reflective backing, so its seetrough.

Find me a company that will make it, and ill give you one
Victorinox was a nice idea, I could actually see them releasing something like this.
nacho these buttons act alot like your mousewheel, so different maybe, but hard to dail whit I dont think so.

You can make it with the ipod color like metal white and show it to apple ...I'm sure someone will contact you soon , a good idea such as this will make some noise...Great work and great thinking
Wait and see!!

It could have a simple menu whit numbers stored in, imble by hoding down 2 till the menu shows and using 1 and 3 as directional buttons and modifing the disply to show simple letters wouldnt be complicated eather, but thats technical mubojumbo and isnt a task for me to figure out.
Here is my marked analysis:
I was fideling whit my phone the other night, got pissed at the camera function I never use and figured there most be more people who want a (2nd) mobilephone whitout all the crap on it that does the basics of a phone (to call whit).
was it hard to imagine the size of the phone from the pictures?
Thanks for the vote of confidence and I hope someone contacts me and want to make it

I think this button system could work quite nicely, but ofcourse I do, I used it in my design.

unless you have a wheel under each button here, there'll always be a tendency to press the button down...electronic equipment IS sensitive and has to be, else you'll keep taking it to get your microswitch replaced

but that’s technical mubojumbo and isnt a task for me to figure out.
That’s not the best view to have mate, you’re the designer? Any company that considers taking you on with this product won’t be impressed with that attitude towards a product!
