    Porsche has "Porsche Design" line of products, what would a "Tesla Design" phone be like? I assume it would actually work as a fob, but what Tesla features would it have in keeping with Elon's and Franz's "philosophy"?? It would be late to market for sure..........

    Half of the software would be in eternal beta.

    You would need a car to operate it.

    I dunno, but the best part would be the GIANT battery: it'd run for a week, easy!

    Tesla phone would be like any of their product offerings, another market disruptor...Sat phone, gig speed internet, cutting edge design and $$$

    It would run either iOS or Android OS with full Apple Car Play or Android Auto on a UHD display in the car

    It would lack an App Store and have the Internet browser labeled as "Coming soon in a future update".

    Apple would never — NEVER — let somebody other than Apple make an iOS phone. A Tesla phone would have to be Android or their own custom OS (probably Linux-based, like the MCU).

    Despite assembly line human beings being very good at assembling such devices, Elon goes against the grain and has the phones assembled by robots that look and
    act like cats and dogs. It is his way of sticking it to the man and thinking in future terms.

    Unfortunately production falls 2 years behind demand as issues at the plant caused remaining staff to utilize Boring flamethrowers to resolve the situation and escape.

    Musk explains on his quarterly report that assembling phones has never been done before, everyone is just a hater.
