Announcing the Winners of the Design the Next iPhone Contest

Posted by Jeff Scott on June 15th, 2009

The new iPhone is here, or will be on Friday. We've already covered the big bucket of amazing that is the iPhone 3GS and the huge disappointment that is the horrible carrier we are saddled with here in the US. But, let's get back to the item at hand, our Design the Next iPhone contest.

As you remember our contest was for you, our faithful readers, to pick the features that you thought would be announced on the next iPhone, the one we now know as the iPhone 3GS. We had a great turnout for entries and before we announce the winners, let's take a look at some of the most popular things people thought we'd see in the iPhone 3GS but won't.

The most expected feature that wasn't announced (yet), was multiple colors other than black and white at 34%. Following that closely was wireless syncing and then multitasking for third party apps.

The least picked features overall were the Apple logo used as a flash and wireless charging (ala the Palm Pre).

Contest Results

A big huge thanks to Griffin Technology for sponsoring our contest. They donated over $200 in great products to use as prizes for this contest.

The first place winner of our contest was John Clayton from Illinois. He'll be getting a great prize pack from Griffin Technology including a PowerDock4, TuneBuds Mobile, and iTrip AutoPilot.

Second place was won by Shivi Aiyar from California. His prize pack from Griffin Technology includes a Clarifi 3G case, and an AirCurve iPhone stand.

And third place winner got a $15 iTunes gift card. The winner was Raul Escutia.
