A blog is attempting to assemble all of the iPhone prototypes and concepts floating around on the Web. My current fave is “iPhone 034″ by WIll Reiher (pictured).
What’s your favorite?
That’s according to rabid Apple fansites spanning the interweb. They all seem to think we’ll get our hands on an ultra-portable from the Mac makers of Cupertino at some point next year.
According to popular conjecture, the fat free portable will use flash memory to start up in a jiffy, and run a cut down version of Apple’s OS X.
We can see the appeal of a pint-sized Mac portable, possibly in tablet form. Its latest laptopsare a little on the large side, and Apple’s decision to discontinue the 12-inch PowerBook left swathes of notebook fans in mourning.
Still, we have to wonder whether Apple would be quick to jump into the UMPC pool. With relatively few exceptions, current ultra-portables leave a lot to be desired.
Pedro mg has posted this cool shot of what the iMac lineup would look like if Apple released the new 24-inch iMac in Black. “Would you pay another $500 for 1GB extra RAM, 128MB extra Video, black paint, and Leopard upgrade, all in the package ?”
Everyone’s pretty worked up over a photo of the alleged iPhone that’s cropped up at Engadget. According to legend the mythical phone could feature VOIP and true iTMS integration in a package the size of an iPod nano.
The slogan (which I cropped) “iChat Mobile, Everything you expect from a Mac, from a phone” sounds Apple-ly enough. My problem is that the slogan sets the bar a little high for a first generation product and is out of character for a company that usually under-promises and over-delivers.
I think that it’s a Photoshop job. Look at the rubbish button setup and whack keyboard – it’s a nightmare. If this is the best that Ive and company can come up with for the holy grail of mobile phones I’ll be disappointed. I’d take one of the delicious mockups over the “iChat Mobile” any day.
Apple-Discounts.com is having a contest to see who can design the coolest “not-yet-existing” Apple product. Some pretty cool stuff there already…

The winners have been announced.
