Wonder If Jony Ive’s One-of-a-Kind Leica Will Be Laser-Cut From a Single Piece of Alu-min-ium?

When Apple CEO Steve Jobs first unveiled the iPhone 4, he compared it to “a beautiful old Leica camera.” It’s fitting, then, that Jony Ive — the guy responsible for its design — has been tapped by the legendary camera maker to create a limited edition Leica M. Leica Chairman Dr. Andreas Kaufmann said at an event Monday night that the Ive-designed camera will be a one-off, and will be sold at auction for charity.

Apple hasn’t responded to a request for comment.
