Rumor suggests nothing extravagant in iPhone 5 design
posted by Nick T. / Mar 17, 2011, 11:05 AM
Crude computer renderings of supposed iPhone 5 case designs have surfaced on the web and do not seem to predict nothing that we have not seen before. First of all, the rumored slide-out keyboard is being completely taken out of the picture since the covers appear to wrap around all of the smartphone's corners leaving no room for anything even similar to a hardware keyboard to slide out of there. Taking a closer look at the case designs also suggests that the iPhone 5 may not be as curvy around the edges as a recent rumor by the Chinese Economic Daily News implied and may even be identical in terms of shape and size to its current counterpart.
Despite the claims that the source of the image has proven to be reliable, the poor drawing job seen in the renderings does not really win our trust. However, over the years little cosmetic changes have been done to the iPhone's looks, which is good enough of a reason to believe that we will not see anything out of the ordinary when the iPhone 5 launches this summer. Perhaps, the bigger changes will be on the inside?

well,from my point of view i think apple should introduce to us iphone 4s with dual core processor and all the new stuff we see these days,and keep the design of the original iphone 4 as i think apple wont come with a better design than that of the iphone 4

Hopefully a 4 in. Screen, dual core processor, 4g and an 8 mp camera in the back and 2 mp in the front that's my hopes

I like the ip4's design. They just need to relocate that antenna somewhere else, make it a little thinner, add a dual core processor, increase the ram, put red eye reduction to its camera, get rid of those two thin vertical black borders, and I'll be very happy.

wait a minute.... are you trying to tell me that apple is going to release a product sequel with an incremental update? And its going to be nearly identical to its predecessor? No... I'm sorry but I have a hard time believing that one....

1st sentence second paragraph has a double negative.... are we writing Apple reviews in Harlem? and do not seem to predict nothing that we have not seen before. seriously? should read: and do not seem to predict anything that we have not seen before. who are they catering to on this site? Apple fanboys? ;)

Why are so many people getting excited over dual code phones? Most software will not utilize them for ages. All the tests so far show no great speed increase. In the real world it very hard to program multiple core CPUs. In real world tests, it is not going to double speed of the phone! If a great phone only has 1 CPU, and it does every thing you need, then be happy with that phone! Status anxiety is rife amongst the internet.
