Cool. But what really got me was the faceted form of the phone which totally brought to mind, the HTC Diamond series. Wonder if the W11K inspired the industrial designers at One & Co.
Oh Karim Rashid was also in the audience (and film) and took part in a pretty entertaining Q&A afterwards. Caught his guest curated exhibition, Totally Rad: Karim Rashid Does Radiators at MAD and thought it was pretty neat. Wish I had use for those sick looking radiators.
