I would also think that Steve would want to cleanse the iPhone of the Papermaster taint.
My old iPhone still works fine. I'm waiting for a phone that doesn't have an exposed antenna. A non-glass back would be good too. Leica cameras are nice an all, but I don't want to have something that fragile in my pocket. My guess/hope is that these leaks are all clever misdirection on Apple's part to lull the competition into complacency.
A nice case on my iPhone 4 and it is the best phone I have ever had. Even naked the issue is mainly when you're in a very, very low signal area, the hand holding the iPhone 4 drops the signal by about 1 bar only. I waited and investigated and was even criticised heavily on these forums regarding "antennagate". But in the end the ambitious design is acceptable to me, and I guess I've been lucky to have dropped the phone when in a case and it's survived.
Been enjoying it for a good half a year now. I hope to not get the iPhone 5 so I can see out my two-year contract with the iPhone 4.
Anyway it's all about iPad now. Enjoy the iPad 2 as much as possible while you can before the iPad 3 comes out, that should be epic and HOPEFULLY HAVE BETTER CAMERAS (for whatever reason besides webcamming LOL).
