This would seem to make sense in light of the whole "iPhone Black" appearance on AT&T's website several weeks back. Personally, I would like an all-black look even better than the current phone. I have the 1st-gen Samsung Blackjack with a matte black finish, and its great. It makes it very easy to hold for e-mailing, texting, etc.

I'm going to call fake. Not to say that a black iPhone wouldn't look good, this is just a fake.
JSN1 claims the photo was taken at the 5th Avenue Apple Store in Manhattan, where Apple was rumored to be shooting a commercial for the upcoming iPhone.
The lines around the Apple logo look way too Photoshopped.

The more I think about the more I believe I wouldn't so much mind having an iphone with a plastic back, as long as it was good thick durable plastic.
When I first heard about the rumors of a possible plastic backing (still rumored) I immediately thought "oh HELL no!" until I took my 3rd gen ipod out of its rubber case its been in for over 2 years without a scratch and within a weeks time it slipped out of my hand and hit the ground twice leaving huge dents in the aluminum backing....not happy. =/
I don't know what type of aluminum backing they used for THAT version but the newly aquired dents lead me to believe "cheap" type.
So I would glady accept a nice durable plastic type backing on the next gen iphone, cause I'd rather come away from a drop with a slight scratch or scuff on my plastic rather than a indention on the phone itself!
Just my 2 cents, and I'm diggin' the rumored black more and more everyday.

The photo you posted is of a custom made regular iPhone. It's completely bogus. I wish it was real though.
If you follow the link you can see the entire phone(front, back, side): http://dvice.com/archives/2007/10/ci...ne_the_wol.php

I dont think its ugly at all. People love Black, its just one of those very sophisticated colors that goes with everything. Apple already did their white thigns and now their moving on to the black. its just their progression of colors. Likely they will lose attention to the black after a while and start doing everything in white like they used to. You have to mix things up.

I can hear the companies prepping those new cases now. The back of the phone doesn't hold my interest. I never look at the back of the phone because my hand is wrapped around it. Of course, you normally wouldn't put it face down for fear of scratching the glass screen, so the back is rarely noticed by me.

I really hope they do not make it a glossy back. There is basically no way to make it glossy and fingerprint resistant, nothing kills good looks like a bunch of oil and grease smeared all over it. I really like to look of the matte pictured at the beginning of this thread, hopefully that is what we will see if we get away from aluminum.
