Don’t you just love the design of the T-Mobile G1? Don’t you? No? I didn’t think so.
Let’s face it, the T-Mobile G1 might be a landmark device, considering it’s the very first Android-powered smartphone ever produced, but its design could use a little more sexing up.
So while those handsome folks from HTC are lazily letting their weekend pass by, here’s a concept that could help them in designing version two of what would have otherwise been known as the HTC Dream:
The Skinny phone by designer David Turpin pictured here features both a large touchscreen display that accepts user-input, as well as a full, sideways-sliding QWERTY keyboard. Sure, this design has been used in many other smartphones before, but none of all those real-world devices look as slim and sleek as this one. Especially not the T-Mobile G1.
If you look at it while closed, you’ll also notice that it kind of looks like an overgrown iPod Touch. Which technically could make it a concept for the iPhone, too.
Well, I think a design like this really belongs in the future of smartphones. It’s up to the smartphone makers to use it on any of their upcoming models, now.
