Is this the new iPhone?
An image was leaked a few months ago that was said to depict the back side of the new iPhone. Now, we have another leaked image, this time showing the device alongside of the original iPhone 3G casing., making differences between the two much easier to notice. It looks like the new iPhone has some kind of a matte finish to it, which makes it pretty different from the much glossier look of the Apple’s previous product.

Another rumor has it that the possible upcoming iPhone successor will sport an autofocus camera and digital compass. There is actually an image of the phone while taking a snapshot… A courageous claim indeed. What do you think? Does this look like the next iPhone?

If it IS the back of the new iPhone, it sure will be a LOT easier to hold onto without a case.

well I am happy apple is releasing a sequal.. but even when the second one comes out, the bb storm is still way better. the home screen of a storm is much more appealing than the homescreen of the iphone. and I love having the send/end/bb button/clear on the front. why doesn't apple put hard buttons on it?

The iPhone doesn't need all of those other buttons. The Storm OS looks better? Have you even seen the iPhone interface?

Calm down vzw fanman. If you love your blackberry, that's cool. If I and other people love their iPhones, that's also fine. No matter how many times you post comments, people will still like their blackberries and people will still like their iPhones. You can post that Apple sucks a million times but that won't really change anybody's mind about anything. And it really doesn't look like you're too happy that Apple is releasing a sequel. Just saying

What B_Adams is trying to say is that the new one is in the left and the current one is on the right.
