    thought I'd add- seriously doubt that it is. It's not sleek enough, and it's just not very 'apple' I can't see this being the design, but who knows!

    The thoughts on the forums Im on are that it's simply prototype hardware not meant to be the finished article in fact meant NOT to resemble the finished product in case it gets lost (like it looks like it has been)

    So no I dont think we can take anything from this.

    There will be a next gen handset for sure but other than that...

    When I read the article I thought it would be all too easy for them to simply loose it. I seriously doubt that they would. My guess is they do things like this on purpose some times for people to get gossiping/excited :yes:

    Those original pics had me doubting but I'd be surprised if that wasn't it, now. I don't think it's very 'apple like' is it :unsure: Really looks totally ordinary.

    yeah I just dont think it's the finished article *HOWEVER* having seen that page with the disassembly in it I must admit, it looks right and if theyre going to announce in June, it would be logical for it to be a close to finished product so :/

    They've took quite a step back in terms of design in my eyes :sigh: I like the buttons along the edge but the fact it is something with 4 'sides' on it rather than the sleek iPhone style, I just don't like it :sigh: Looks much more solid though.

    I had the same sentiments about the basic shape: it's just not 'apple'- the curved style is a distinctive icon: the laptops, imac, ipods and all ipods are similar in design shape. They won't fiddle with it.

    I'm guessing its a hand made prototype and that the screws are visible so they can easily take it apart and see how things like changing the back effect the phone.

    I expect the 4G to be as sleek and smooth as my 3G is, with the camera and flash. I also expect a MUCH improved GPS unit, the performance of the TomTom and Navigon apps are abysmal at times.

    I think it's the real deal - conveniently 'lost' during the week apple announce massive profits no less - two positive news items that greatly overshadow the negative information - that they have nowhere near enough iPads to meet demand, and consumers are going to be left waiting for months to get their hands on them.
