    Not to be taken as the official word as usual but I found this interesting. Not sure how much I like this. I think it would look better with a redesigned bottom with some curve to it.

    That is not a picture of a working iPhone. The camera lens is the dead give away.

    This looks like a step-back from the current iPhone's design (a sort of pre-iphone 4 design). Not convincing to me.

    I hope the markup is wrong about the headphone placement. Not to mention all the accessories will no longer work for somebody that wants to upgrade cause of the peripheral changes. That is just a waste of money to me.

    May be a waste of money for you, but will make Apple even more $ as people will have to replace said accessories.

    People are in denial about this "leaked"design but I say where there's smoke there's fire.

    There have been lots of leaked designs that are very similar and I believe that this is the new design for the most part. And yes looks like the head phone jack will be on the bottom.

    We'll learn to love it. Just like always!

    so true Zanthe

    I am hating the headphone Jack on the bottom...but I will learn to live with it...

    I am definitely getting the NEW iPhone.......no matter where the headphone jack is located.

    I am holding out hope for 128GIG, QUAD CORE Processor with 1 GIG of RAM

    There are currently no iOS applications that need more than a single core. iOS 6 is already optimized for running on a dual core. And there is NO benefit what-so-ever to running a quad core CPU in an Apple device. Adding two more cores is a waste of material and battery power.

    Android needs quad core because of the overhead of the Dalvik Virtual Machine and the piss poor programming practices of the Java developers. Google is using Microsoft's theory for code. Throw more hardware at the problem to make the software work.

    Thank goodness Apple doesn't subscribe to that idiotic philosophy.

    Not sure about the two tone design...I imagine the phone will look different in my hands than it does in a picture, so we'll see. Definitely against the headphone jack move to the bottom, though. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised, but I just don't see that being something I'll like. I do like the look of the speakers, but I'm concerned about problems with dust and crap getting clogged in those holes. I've never been one to keep my tech super clean...

    I like the headphone placement I tend to slide my phone in my pocket dock connector up so it'll be easier with the headphones pointing up.

    I will most likely get the new iPhone as well, I'm very much overdue for an upgrade as well. Guessing how the Apple engineers operate maybe there is a good reason they changed the design, like a bigger battery?, or more ram/CPU space? I'd hope.

    Honestly, I just want a home button that works properly and consistently. I'm so sick of my iPhone 4 and the lack of home button functioning.

    Yes maybe they needed more space for larger battery or RAM/CPU.

    HOPE SO.

    I really hope the design is different from the 'leaked' parts. I'm not a fan of the longer iPhone. Didn't Tim Cook say Apple was going to be more careful with leaked info?

    The design is meaningless. I wouldn't care if Apple never changed their design ever again. It's only the innards that count. Put the iPhone in a StarTAC shell and I'll still be happy if I can play Infinity Blade on me 3.5 inch screen.

    I have yet to see a working iPhone '5', minus the renderings. Gizmodo has a complete article on the 'rumor roundup". It has several 'leaked' images, as well as a video of the casing. Click here to view their article on this. Everything listed there, for the most part, is listed on EverythingiCafe as well, just not in one article.

    I like the longer iPhone because it meant a bigger screen.
    I know Apple like to do things differently but bigger screen really look nicer, a good example would be the S3
