Don’t want an iPhone

June 25, 2007

Here’s a screen-grab from one of the iPhone ads, and it exemplifies why I don’t think Apple got it right.  Here in Western cultures we read left-right.  So WHY would you put the hang up button on the left – when a call comes in?  That’s the first button your eye sees, and EVERY OTHER PHONE OUT THERE puts the answer and disconnect buttons on the left and right, respectively.

And how are you supposed to type on a screen with your finger when there’s no responsiveness to tell whether you’ve pressed a key?  The tactile response of where you are on the keyboard is important.

This should be interesting.
