I'd love to see that. However, if they change the unibody to something that's not identical to the iPhone 5, it will have a different nomenclature. I'm not saying it's not possible to do in a 5" iphone with the iP5 unibody, but in a plastic body? Probably not.
Starting from the iPHone 4 i started using cases...mainly because i don't like the hard/squared/chamfered edges of either the 4 or 5. and the iPhone 5 is so much thinner that to me it's even more uncomfortable to hold and grip naturally. But that's just me.
Offering the iPhone in any other color than black or silver makes little sence. Most people put cases on their phones anyway, so what's the point? Sure there's others that use them naked at well. Yeah it worked for the nano and cheaper models but those are not $700+(retail) devices. It's a whole matter of what do they do with the Gold (and other odd colors) that don't sell as well.
you walk into a retailer and only find every color you don't want is available. That's just annoying.
