    I'm still skeptical for a few reasons. It's not like Apple to let things like this slip out.

    Maybe we are lucky this time IDK? That could easily be the form factor given to the test models for the new specs while the final form factor remains safe with Apple and they simply outed an employee who they did not trust.

    Soon we will know the rest of the story.

    Yup, Apple does not leak stuff. It looks a lot like the iPad.

    looks ugly for an apple design. there's no cohesiveness to it. i don't believe it.

    I thought it would look identical to the iPad but just smaller:

    It is similar but the back is TOTALLY flat, unlike the iPad. Unless this is an early prototype where apple intentionally mask the final design...

    I've been thinking about the next generation iPhone for a few months now. I go back and forth on different topics with it and I've come to the conclusion the form factor is second to the OS and hardware specs.

    I'm sure Apple will not miss the boat on the casing but have some concern they may in fact mess up the internal hardware specs.

    I really want to see a 1GHz processor, more memory and duel cameras with flash.

    Sounds like they have already made the right choices with the new OS 4.0.

    BTW I've been posting for the last two week exclusively from my iPad and PS works great from the Pad.

    This thing is hideous, plus the screen looks smaller.

    I hope this is just an early prototype, and not the final product.

    I like the way it looks to be honest. I think it looks better than the original. Looks more professional. Waiting on the specs which i hope will be soon.

    I guess it does have that Machined/iMac/Uni-Body MBP appearance to it. It's reminds me of my MBP.

    Doesn't look very impressive and I doubt Apple would let this happen

    There are good points on both sides of what this will turn out to be. Real or Fake?

    Link to article that offers more insight

    This could easily be leaked to stymie Android excitement or several other reasons

    Have to Luv-it

    So it appears as tho Apple has admitted it's theirs. Now we have to wait and see if this will ultimately change the end product form. It could still be a prototype form factor and still not what the final product will be.

    Boy I would hate to be that Apple Employee who lost it.

    Can you say "FIRED!"

    Don't know about that. The Chinese employee who lost a prototype last year was apparently notorious for 'losing' devices. They said that incident was not his first. I believe it's possible, but either way it has people looking at Apple and asking, "Well?".
