    I wouldn't even say 'nice try'....



    I think you're right on.

    I think this is the new iPod Touch, not the new iPhone. (If indeed these are "real" designs)

    I suspect you're probably right, but I think the Apple actually is centered. The leaf going to the right often has an optical illusion to it. If you look at the center of the stem points on the top and bottom, it does look centered to me.

We've seen Apple issue cease and desist orders before (such as for that iPad 2 case that leaked) which generally implies they are accurate, but I take these all with a HUGE grain of salt.



    urrr... yes they do, incase always had cases ready at the Apple Store during launch, so they must've had measurements at the latest 6 months prior the shipping date.

    Maybe I'm being more careful with my iPhone 4, but I was constantly dropping my iPhone 3. Seems to me the iPhone 4's 'rectangular' design is easier to hold onto? Can't remember ever dropping my iPhone 4? (Knock on wood! ) In fact, I don't even have a case for my iPhone 4!

    This is not an Apple case but an aftermarket case. Such renditions have surfaced before and turned out to be legit. Measurements will sometimes leak from manufacturers or trusted 3rd party manufacturers, no matter how much security you place in a factory, measurements can be memorized and written-down later, then sold for a pretty penny.

    This looks completely wrong to me. Then again the iPhone 4 leak looked fake before we got the high-def images of the device.

    I don't consider that to be incorrect despite the fact I'd have used 'farther' as described by GG. If you read the entire article you link to you'll see 'further' is also accepted by all but the most pedantic. Considering this is a tech forum the fact your entire post — and your second post on this forum — was to point out what you think is an incorrect word by a single letter I wonder what you expected to gain from your off-topic comment.

    Same experience, my Og iPhone went a flying many a time and though the screen never cracked it did take the odd ding on the metal. My iP4 has blessedly remained firmly in hand.

    Well said! I'm a bit of a grammar Nazi myself but I don't ever call people out for misusage unless it somehow creates ambiguity. And as anyone who has studied language knows, the whole point of grammar is not to adhere to arbitrary rules, but rather to ensure clarity in communication. Swapping out "further" and "farther" creates no ambiguity, regardless of the nuances of difference in their definitions.

    Just because people are using a word incorrectly doesn't make it right.



    I'm usually in favour of grey areas in grammar, but these words have (at least originally) completely different meanings. I mean why don't we all just exchange grunts and forget about grammar altogether if we are going to do this.

    It's not impossible that the new iPhone-5 won't have the wrap-around antenna, changes might be required for them to move to a single CDMA/GSM model. The existing iP4 models have to have slightly different cases as I understand it in order to handle their different antenna needs.



    This is all very hypothetical though, I freely confess to knowing nothing about modern RF circuits.

    Just because people don't think a word is correct doesn't make it upright. As inkswamp astutely stated the purpose of language is to communicate.



    Let's remember that all language is made up. That means that all rules, all spellings, all definitions, and even their associated phonemes and morphemes.



    One day, perhaps even your lifetime, your use of the word 'grey' may be considered incorrect for your usage in favor of 'gray'.

    This is a case for a new Samsung phone, it just looks like it's for an iPhone.

    Its probably a case for a fake iPhone sold at one of the fake Apple Stoer.

    That's because they are a mixture of rumors about "Plan A" (iPhone 5) and "Plan B" (iPhone 4S).

    I like the current iPhone 4 form factor.

    I think it is classy.

    Remember that there was talk about Apple still selling the iPhone 3GS as an entry level device that would be cheep without a contract and really cheep with a contract. Well if they were going to do that they would need to bring one to Verizon too...so this might be the new iPhone 3GS that would have that dual CDMA/GSM chip. That would also explain why the LED flash hasnt moved because they might use the 5MB camera module that is used in the iPhone 4, and the new iPhone 4S or 5 would then have the new 8MB camera module with dual LED flash. If you think about it if they do keep the iPhone 3GS around they would have to update the look and maybe some of the internals because if they plan on supporting the phone with later iOS updates they usually keep updates for a phone 3, 4 years after it has been out right? Moving this new iPhone 3GS to the A4 would also make more sense with all the new dual core chip phones coming out now...it would also allow the iPhone 4S to have the A5 and the new iPhone 5 and iPad 3 could run the rumored A6 or an updated beefier A5+



    Just some thoughts off the top of my head...let me know what you think...

    One problem with changing the 3GS shell too extensively is it impacts their litigation against samsung - which is another reason why I wonder if this might be the long fabled TD-SCDMA phone.

    I think we can safely assume that any new model of phone, will have at least an A4, but other than that it's not clear. Lots of rumours, but no real data.

    Whatever the shape of the thing I just hope it is thicker so that it will have more battery space. The anorexic look gets in the way of functionality.
