Next up, Nexus F, "the farmer phone". Ok, so no flaming....yet. This is alpha only and will require the rest of the week for refinement. 
I decided to start with the general shape of the 'D' but removed the curved screen, gave it an aluminum body and added solid pins in the corners for load bearing. Then covered the corner with some anti-shock plastic. Idea is that if you set your toolbox on the phone the pins take the load instead of the body, but if you drop your phone on your wife's glass kitchen table the plastic is all that touches.
Has to have a double strength speaker for those calls in the tractor and all the old deaf farmers. But then what?? I'm looking for ideas.
Is there a standard magnetic USB? I've got ideas for a pile of peripherals such as moisture meters for hay and grain, volt/ohm meters, tire pressure gauge and all manner of farmer things, so I need a good safe way to hook them up that will "break away" if pulled. I'm also thinking laser level, laser distance, and laser/infrared temp gauge.
Ok, well help me out if you've got anything good. (city slickers need not apply)   ;)
What do you think +Richard Schroeder ?

It would have to approach the standard tight IP67 enough to him ,and should also think of the sun reflected on the screen, Because if this unit is destine in to outsider of the homes .
 
Cool, I'll have to check it out after work. J'ai visité les ferme français quand j'ai travaillé chez Kuhn.
 
Watch out with the magnet USB...Apple may sue since there Mac books used magnets for their chargers
 
Yeah, did you see the latest one i posted? Mine is oval not square and has 4 pins not 5, and provides data and power rather than receiving just power. But now that I look it up Apple has a patent on "Magnetic connector for electronic device" even though they just took the design from existing deep fryers. How can they get a patent on this for ANY electronic device??? If a deep fryer has a plug to plug it in then isn't it by definition an electronic device? I call their patent void, and if it's not void then it's for receiving power only and specific to their shape and pin layout. Sorry Apple, you don't get to patent the magnet, only your specific implementation of it.

I think the possibility of adding your phone has a ANEMOMETER SENSOR TURBINE connect by USB and a moisture of the air, sprays of chemicals, is important for farmers.
And why this phone denomer NexusF and not give him the name Lust F, as this is your creation.
