iPhone Elite: What the iPhone should have been?
This is what the original iPhone should looked like if Apple decided to include a slide-out qwerty keyboard instead of just purely touchscreen. Mat Brady added and Photoshoped the refinements then emailed Steve Jobs.
What’s added aside from the qwerty keyboard the slides horizontally from the side is a Carl Zeiss camera lens (3.2MP would do) placed somewhere near the center and has some optical zoom (2 or 3x I guess).
Of course, this concept design would mean you get a much thicker iPhone and even pricier too. I think it’s doable and people would still buy it. I don’t think Apple would ever make it though.
