For those of you concern with the aesthetics, let's not forget that these leaked photos are of a prototype = a preview (a prototype for G'sake!) and as such, nothing is final, nothing is set in stone and that includes the outer shell.
I think HTC is saving the better design for its own product line. Google should at least "buy" a decent design team.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2009And I thought the G1 was ugly....Your not the only one who thought that! lol
looks like a futuristic bar of soap the N97 or iphone 3g or even the HTC HD look far better or the best way to describe it 'more sexy'
Why is it that this potential piece of software (android) is always packed in the most ugly available case? It's not that HTC can't make any decent design but I get the feeling that the Android-line is being design by a group of drunken lemurs!
Even the GUI of the OS looks miserable compared to what is available on the market. WHY ??? PLS SOMEONE TELL ME WHY IS IT LIKE THIS?
It is the HTC Sapphire appeared in the leaked HTC 2009 phone pictures (http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_2009_roadmap_leaks_in_pictures_seems_quite_promising-news-733.php). Let's hope other models in such pictures will run Android!
