Finally, after months, I've got a new Tetent concept.

My first attempt today looked like this:

The current concept is 48x96x48mm and has a cutout for Finger5. I haven't yet added things like the screen or speakers yet since I want to make sure that the layout passes first.

Wow that difference... It's like the first one came out in 2002 and the current one is the 2020 refresh.
