It's really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them.

|Gee Zero is my Hot Hot Telephone||5:38 AM|
Android. Google. Google Chrome. Cellphone. Mobile device. The little screen you carry around to handle all of your business. That’s where it’s at. Here we’ve got something to take your sox off. This aint no G3 phone, this isn’t even a G1 phone. It’s a G0. It’s made by our old pal Tryi Yeh who’s had 5+ items on Yanko when this post is posted! This G0 is hot gold. It’s just what you need in your pocket. I want one, so I’m amping it up.
You want a phone that does all your business, but you’re sick of those complicated butt-dialers by the name of Blackberry, and you’re not up on fruit. So you’ve got to look around. Here’s what’s up.
The G0 runs on Android and Google Chrome. It’s got a flexible oLED touch panel. A slide body, revealing the four buttons and the camera lens. High LED on back to tell status of the phone (liking this- never really liked sounds coming out of my pocket all the time):
Red Flashing - battery almost exhausted
Green - 100% cell
White Flashing - incoming call
Purple Flashing - something is wrong because the phone isn’t supposed to have purple OR Prince is calling.
Take note that this design was caught up in some email twists and turns and arrived to us a little late, woops! So it’s also on gizmodo and DVice - but we’re all pals, right? We can have some conference calls on our G0 phones, right?
