Are good industrial designers that hard to find?

September 23, 2008

T-Mobile announced the G1 today, their “iPhone killer” running Android.  I’m still working through the discussion of its capabilities, but I have to admit that my initial reaction is to wonder how hard it really is to find a good industrial designer.  Seriously, look at the thing.  If you’re trying to beat the iPhone, wouldn’t it make sense to create a phone as sleek and elegant?  The iPhone looks good and feels good in your hand.  This thing looks like a clunky cheap plastic block.  I’m reminded of the cliche about bringing a knife to a gun fight.

    the proportions on that thing are kind of thick and fugly, but I’ve seen less attractive phones. However, I did enjoy the Black Angels trying to lend some cool factor to the website. That’s a great song.
