I came upon this post from Gizmodo, one of the leading technology blogs out there. They’re unabashedly huge fans of the iPhone, but thought of a few features/aspects that the current iPhone lacks, that they would like to see, and so they created the iPhone Pro.
Features of this desired ‘iPhone Pro’ include a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a high-resolution camera with flash and video capture, and a high-resolution widescreen (16:9) touchscreen display. They also want a front-facing secondary camera for vide0 chatting, and gobs of internal storage. Sounds great, right?
So great, in fact, that Nokia already designed it, and announced it a few weeks ago. It’s called the Nokia N97. It features a 3.5″ 16:9 widescreen display (bigger than the current iPhone’s, actually), stereo speakers, and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It also packs a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with dual-LED flash and Carl Zeiss optics. The N97 can capture video at 640×360 resolution, which is somewhere between VGA and HD quality, I believe. It’s also got 32GB of internal storage, with a microSD card slot, so you can load up even more.
However, because they’re a leading publication, they can’t, not for a minute, admit that perhaps they desire a Nokia product over an Apple one. That would just be dorky, right?
