Talking about fingerprint scanning, Motorola ATRIX already use Biometric Fingerprint Scanning Technology. :)

I'm sure the finger print scanning, whether it be a 6th or 7th gen feature, will not work great. It seems like how they did voice search at first. A friend of mine has an iPhone 3Gs and we still like to see what kind of bad results voice search comes up with.

Asus has a concept on a screen size changing feature, on a device referred to as Iris they showed it at CES 2010.
By pulling the corners the device can be changed to whatever size you want, Among other things.

Adoptable devices would be cool, though it would probably be a while till we got them.

Just like Siri was the selling point of iPhone 4S, this fingerprint scanner might be for the iPhone....... 5S I'm guessing.

Question is, what secret new feature does Apple have for the iPhone 5?

As much as I love concept videos and pictures, the rubber band stretching is too far fetched.

I am not partisan about much, i am bi-partisan. I use Android and grateful that Samsung launches its international version in my country. Bought the newipad 1 month ago but unable to use because itunes wants credit card no and i dont want to give credit card no. I used US address, since my siblings live there and us address helps in downloading music thats free. I will never download paid app, it wants international credit card but my country does not allow full convertibility to save foreign currency . Yet i am stuck like that. is that fair? I found out that there are many who have not used their apple device for upto a year because of id and itune and crap+s**t. THANK GOD FOR ANDROID. ..THANK YOU GOOGLE AND SAMMY AND OTHERS. I am connected to the world...Apple is adifficult boorish experience. .... and this is the case worlwide

I must say that the elastic feature would be great but I don't see Apple doing this. The closest to this is Maybe Samsung with its bendable display if it can design bendable microprocessors and LTE chips. Now that would be Innovation.
