3G and 3Gs have a flat
back, with curved edges.
I think a nice narrow wedge like the bottom half of an Air would be cool and give it a "handedness" myself, but we won't really know till we see it anyway.
Given that we know it will probably be a flat square with a screen on the front and buttons around the edges though, predictions about what it will look like are a big waste of time IMO. The hardware is really not that important in terms of predictions and the software
is really telling, and really important.
I think Ireland
is wrong about it being desktop OS-X on it and I think solipsism
is wrong about it being a whole new OS in between the desktop and iPhone. IMO it will just be iPhone OS 4.0.
Predictions are just a silly game though and we'll all know soon enough. It doesn't matter that much to me if I'm totally wrong as long as the device itself works well and does what I want it to. Apple designs really good stuff, I'm sure it will be great even if it's not exactly what we all want.
