showing details depends on the geometry your using as there are difference approaches to Polys than NURBS or Sub-D's

Amen to that! Sub d's will be easy to use to make good buttons, and you could add a movie texture for the screen, but that'll come later. Good luck!

Pretty hard to give feedback when you have so much left. Get all the features (buttons, screen etc) on first and then see what you can improve

The only advice I could give you now is to continue shaping your cell, which is kind of obvious
