Help us design the upcoming Geeksphone Zero!
« on: January 05, 2011, 04:00:35 PM »
Hi everyone!

We wish to give you all the oportunity to share with us and participate in the design of the upcoming Geeksphone device.... the Geeksphone Zero!

We porpose you three different colours... but you can suggest your own patterns, imprints... where would you place the Zero logo? In which colour? Geeksphone brand will appear in the back but.. would you put it in the front too?

We are open for your suggestions! Now you have the chance to create the best design for our next device :)

For the logo what about a striked 0??? it could be beter then "zero" i think no?

For the logo not in front, because, for exemple, i have got one of the firts one with no "one" on the front, i prefert it then the next that have it... ;)

For the color a blue coule be good to, but the color that you chose are good. :)

One thing that could be good with the one is a waterproof phone, it could be totally good if it could be...

The black is the better for me because all the white becomes yellow when then take years...

Hi Javier,
Graphite version is fine with me. I would not mind the whole thing to be black though, just as One is  ;)

OT:
I cannot see where the phone charger socket is located but I hope is somewhere on the bottom. The top location is really uncomfortable when using One as a car's GPS  :'(

I would go for the graphite one too.

How about "zero" logos on the device?

P.S. also I don't "like" the geeksphone on the back...
I would rather not be recognised for the geek that I am :)

Er... that's the company's name and brand, I don't think it's optional :)

Probably not :)
And besides aesthetics does not matter as much to me as "freedom" and functionality.
Otherwise I would probably own a IPhone and not a Openmoko Neo, Freerunne and now a GP One.
(For those that don't know the Neo/Freerunner was actually called "the bathtub" by one of my friends, lets just say that it will probably never win any design awards)

A alternate way of depicting zero would be "null", but it is probably too word like to be a good alternative.
Also 0 isn't equal to null in all programming languages...

My opinion: 1.- Graphite 2.- Frac 3.-Snow
My wife's opinion: 1.- Frac 2.- Graphite 3.- Snow

Hopefully I will not buy a Zero for me (but I'm not sure if I will buy a Zero for my wife... ::)).

I want to see some thread similar about the TWO  ;) it will be probably, my next phone...
  ...porque me gustó la iniciativa de Juan Gómez-Jurado

Also apart from the nice pictures, some specs would be nice.

Will the one and two have hardware keyboards?
Screen resolution?
etc.
Considering the current date I assume that those things are locked, as you don't change them this "late" in the process.
Things like the CPU speed and RAM size is some that easier to change

Looks good, but specs would be nice :)

Compass ? Proc ? Memory ? Networks ? DVB-T ?

And of course the price.

GeeksPhone Zero's screen will be equivalent to HTC Legend's. Same size, same resolution. We also know it will not have a physicall keyboard. Also, we already know it will have FM Radio.
