That's too bad, but the outer shape was awesome (except for the
excessively huge bevel, there should be some, but not so much).

The Freerunner has an awesome format to be held horizontally on your
hands, with the pointer finger around the curve (a natural fit) and the
thumbs to press on the surface.

Too bad it's not good enough hardware to take that advantage in hands,
but it's an awesome shape that Apple won't sue you for :)
