Rumors related to Apple products have always been a dime a dozen. The ones about future iPhone and iPad iterations seem to be particularly popular, and while most of them are nothing but blatant fakes, others do turn out to be highly accurate. Which group does this recent leak belongs to? Well, that's a question we can't quite give a definite answer to. What you see on the picture is said to be the back plate for that elusive low-cost iPhone...

Tell me one Apple-product that is made out of plastic and I will give you a chocolate chip cookie and a glass of milk. And I don't want to see the old iPods.

"The iPhone 3G's back featured a redesigned plastic polycarbonate housing, replacing the aluminum back of the first generation."

I really can't see apple doing this, selling cheap products just doesn't fit them at all. Apple is all about premium and profit.

Apple needs to break in developing markets where cheap Android and to a certain extent cheap Windows Phone is all the rage.

I guess the cool, in with the crowd status is gone now with this one. They took that look right out of Samsungs book. I don't see this phone around for long in the US. Maybe somewhere else it will survive. People will bend over backwards to stay hip or in and this phone is not the answer!

Apple will probably still charge $400 retail and total cost of production in Foxxcon looks like around $100 maxx with all parts.
