  • Huge iPhone Tabletop Almost Ready for Purchase

    It's unlikely that Steve Jobs and the design team at Apple will get any ideas from this prototype. But I guess anything is possible. Those who criticize the iPad as just a big iPod touch will have a field day on this one - a 58-inch functional iPhone desk that will soon be available for purchase.

    To be clear, the photo above is just an illustration - a photo mock-up of what is to come from the people behind Table Connect, who state on their website that "via the Table Connect App you can gain complete control over your iPhone using the multitouch table." In other words, your iPhone (yes, it needs to be jailbroken to work with Table Connect) will let you run all your apps through the 58" multitouch desk surface.

    But is such an enormous table-top iPhone practical? Some will say yes. Most will say no. However, all must recognize the potential gaming opportunities that could result from such a monstrosity. I'm all but certain that the eventual video demo of this contraption at work (available in about two more days) will present a wide range of aspects in which the product can be used. And it's an equally safe bet that there will be a buyer for this thing somewhere - we just don't know who and how much they are willing to spend.

    No price tag has yet been unveiled for the Table Connect.

      Will it be an app repository or suppository?

      I'd enjoy it as a novelty...but just realize how much a decent 58 inch TV costs. Now double that and it's a likely price

      I would love surfing the web on a table.

      I see some real possibilities for the college crowd... or at least those who can afford it... so maybe not the college crowd, but i'll bet this novelty will produce several modified renditions of beer pong, flip cup, boom, etc... I can see how it'd be fun to have at a fraternity house or something, but it's definitely not meant to be seriously practical, let alone cheap... kind of like the $4000 shiatsu massaging recliner of 'iDevices'...
