The Xphone Will Destroy the iPhone… if It was a Real Product

by Lambert Varias

We’ve yet to see a gadget really compete against the iPhone, to the extent that subscribers in the U.S. are willing to endure the sometimes horrible service of AT&T so that they can keep using Apple’s revolutionary product. If you were a designer or engineer and you were asked to make an iPhone-killer, what features would you include? Would you add a 48 megapixel camera? The ability to print pictures? What about cassette tape, VHS, and even floppy disk reading? What the hell am I talking about?


I’m talking about the xphone. And yes, that’s a VHS tape going inside it. Watch as this German-made spoof pokes fun at consumers’ demands for a do-it-all device and technology’s ever-increasing capacity to pack a ton of features into one gadget.

The Onion would be proud of whoever made that video.

    I’d only buy one if it played BetaMax tapes.

    Id buy one just to make some toast.

    I think it’d be sweet to have something that could do all those things but the person that made this video is on crack. If anything was ever able to do all those things, it’d be convenient, but the thing would be the size of an apartment for god’s sake! The combination of the things on there are absolutely pointless(except the coffee and the toast) and one question still remains. Where the F*** is the phone and how do expect people to call their friends while their warming their coffee and making toast! The German inspired spoof was obviously thought up while they were in a crack-binge-induced coma… Hope you like my post. Peace.

    uh, ya. if we had the technology to make this thing, we would also have the stuff to cure cancer, AIDS, and maybe even find a way to colonize Mars or even Pluto! i’m sorry, but i’ll believe it when i see it in stores

    Can you imagine making your toast or boiling your kettle and the phone rings and you rush to grab and snap crackle sizzle their goes your face and hand. The iphone will kill most phones for ages to come,just wish they’d include java.
