10:32AM “You gotta see this in person. This is beyond the doubt, the most precise thing, and one of the most beautiful we’ve ever made. Glass on the front and back, and steel around the sides. It’s like a beautiful old Leica camera.”
Steve Jobs when describing the new iPhone 4G.
Having owned numerous ‘gadgets’, many containing both glass and steel, and having owned several Leica’s (all made of brass and magnesium alloy) I can honestly say that no mass-produced, Chinese made digital gadget will feel, look or operate like a Leica. What Steve is trying to do here is class his product with something that has integrity and impeccable build quality. Nice try Steve, but those who know Leica well, will scoff at your comparison, and everyone who doesn’t know Leica couldn’t give a shit.
