Apple iPhone 4

Apple iPhone 4

I was sceptical when I saw the Gizmodo leak about the new Apple iPhone 4 — surely it was just a prototype casing, I thought.

My reasoning at the time was that it seemed to go against the grain in terms of where Apple appeared to be going with the new streamlined, almost aerodynamic form factors of recent offerings — something I have to say I am not a fan of. One of the reasons I held on so long to my old G4 Powerbook (which I am now forced to replaced due to it’s recent demise) was that I liked the basic boxyness of it’s shape, the exposed screws and the slight lack of refinement in it’s construction. It had an ‘engineering project’ feel about it which I loved.

Well I was wrong and I am glad I was wrong because I love the new iPhone. It has an almost Bauhaus quality with it’s spare glass and steel construction and simple disc shaped volume buttons. There has been criticism from some about the exposed screws — not sleek or minimal enough and not very ‘Apple’ they say – well I beg to differ. To me this new direction for the iPhone represents a return to form.
