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.
