nothing design group: smart phone note

‘smart phone note’ by nothing design group

‘smart phone note,’ by korean designer jin-woog koo of nothing design group, combines the multimodal utility of the iPhone with the time-tested ease of traditional note-taking. hailing itself a ‘notebook for the post-digital generation,’ the product provides iPhone storage together with a paper notebook for ease of portability in the many situations that might require both objects.

accessible through the front cover, the iPhone can be used even when the notebook is closed. when it is open, phones can be placed either horizontally or vertically in the foam insert; the headphone jack is easily accessible in either configuration.

    I really like the idea, at work im always jotting things down, listerning to music, making notes on emails, youtubes vids or links to follow up on. its a neat little package.

    The one thing im not a fan of is the window to show the iphone. id prefer it to be protected.

  • Do you have an ipod version?

  • no point to mimic to a real note pad look and made a small iphone looks bigger and bulky. No logic of convenience and practicality. Too many phones already a mimic of remote controller or ‘touchy’ mirror. Now to mimic a note pad…no reason at all.

  • Where we can find them?
