The core minimalist shell is very much like the latest from Sony and Samsung.

Since I am coming from the Sony camp, it's no big surprise that I am one of those who think the Quattro looks great. The minimalist stripped and unobtrusive styling appeals to me very much.

I studied industrial design at college, and I think the Quattro concept ticks several of the ten principles of good design, introduced by the design legend Dieter Rams. If you look att Apple and their designs, it is quite obvious that they are followers of these principles. If the Quattro had come in white, or bare aluminum, with an apple logo and iCam written on it, it would have been recieved as an Apple product without hesitation.

Now remains to see if the ergonomics actually works, and if it can deliver that Foveon magic I know people over here cherish. That is after all what matters the most.
