Rodolphe Desmare took a walk on the wild side by imagining a new iPhone form factor faced in pearly goodness, but backed in black. The focus of this concept is centered on iChat video conferencing which is an idea that gets me all worked up. Having the option to shoot video without needing a jailbroken iPhone would be a fine place for Apple to begin.
The black trim around the face is a slick detail lifted from the the new MacBooks. The split screen video with map below is also a nice touch. I would expect landscape view to be optional for video chat as well. While I experienced gargantuan stimulation from this iPhone's ultra-thin profile, I wasn't too thrilled with the body being so tapered. It seems like it would feel a tad top heavy to hold, like Jesica Simpson in fat pants.
Rumors of Apple releasing a fresh iPhone form factor this year have begun to surface with renewed hope pinned on a $99 model. Until the 2009 iPhone photos are leaked, I'll take comfort in Rodolphe's sweet dreams made of this.
Fake is the new real. What are you looking forward to in a new iPhone?
