Mobile PC Design Showcase


Design the product of your dreams and we'll show it to the world!


Tired of boring mobile products? Are you sick of being told that you can have whatever color you want, as long as it’s black or silver? So are we. And we want you to do something about it!


We’re looking for the product design of your dreams -- the gadget you wish you could have but nobody makes -- whether it’s a hot-pink notebook with giant fins or a cell phone that’s so thin it can live in your back pocket. We know you’ve got ideas: here’s your chance to show the world.


Send us high-res images of your brilliant new concept for a combination GPS and camcorder, your revolutionary media player with a foldout screen, or any other mobile technology product to design@mobilepcmag.com. The only limit is your imagination and your 3-D design skills.


We’ll feature our favorite submissions in an upcoming issue of Mobile PC (and send you an honorarium for your trouble) along with some concepts from top professional designers.


Designs must be received by October 10, 2004. The Mobile PC editorial staff will contact you if your design is selected for inclusion in the magazine.
