With the imminent release of the iPhone 3G, we are seeing a flurry of new designs laying their claim as the next iPhone killer. However, what I like about this beautiful Black Tab phone by Jaren Goh is that unlike copycat designs, the Black Tab adds an edge to the iPhone's soft design with a cool chrome base.
This twist adds volume and a premium touch to the gorgeously lush, wide black screen that is the centerpiece of the attention.
Similar to Apple's design philosophy, Goh's motivation was to design a normal phone to complement our fashion and the way we dress without evoking too much technological complications.
Keeping fashion in mind, the camera tab on the back is designed using 'features found on handbags and fashion accessories' rather than the typical camera shutter or lens cover.
Can't wait for the new iPhone 3G? See a super gallery of 77 iPhone innovations and a lamp design by Goh:
