12 of the Year’s Best Ideas in Interface Design.

John’s Phone made it to Fast Company’s Co.Design list of best ideas in Interface.

The idea here is to do away with all the useless special features that make cell technology wasteful and inaccessible to many users. Appropriately, the interface is stripped down to its most basic parts — an oversized number pad and graphic call and hangup keys that even a toddler could figure out.’

A great review of John’s Phone.

Some presents for iPhone users…

It seems that a lot of  iPhone users secretly long for a John’s Phone. To make the process of switching to John’s phone easier we’d like to give those iPhone users some John’s wallpapers to get used to the idea of having a John’s phone. Or as we always say: ‘Buy your second Phone first’.

Enjoy;-)
