    As we approach June we're going to see more and more concept designs, some up-front, some faked as "leaks", a few so good we hope Apple is paying attention, others so bad we wish we could un-see 'em!

    If you come across any, post them here, and link to the source! Also, let us know what you think of them. Which do you hope are close, and which do you love even though there's not chance Apple would ever make one like it?

    To start things off, Gregg just sent me this one from Joe on Facebook:

    Yeah I had to send it to you. This is the most believable one I've seen. I can see how the back would be multi touch like the mouse. If this isn't it. It should be.

    The above image is almost identical to one we saw last year with a matte backing. I have a feeling whatever we get will look similar to HTC's HD 2. Just my opinion.

    I still think that guessing June is not the best idea. Apple can release products whenever they want.

    The three release dates have been the following. Notice how one was not June and another was almost not June

    I really like that design. Say!....what will a touch sensitive body do to the 3rd party case manufacturers out there???

    First of all, I like the design frm the image up there and second, I think the 4th gen. iPhone will have a light up apple sign on the back. That would be great. I also like the front face camera.

    That concept Rene posted is really slick looking. That would be awesome.

    Im curious the battery tech they will be employing IF all the multitask conjecture pans out.

    A Cortex A9 dual core could well contribute to longer battery life, as could higher amounts of RAM. Counterintuitively, more horsepower is sometimes good for battery life as the machine can get things done quickly and return the CPUs to a halted state and use the second core only as needed, I wonder if we might see dynamic over and under clocking of the cores as well. These techs combined with the newer battery tech available could well give us something to cheer about.

    Just give me some other color option, black and white are boring. I'd like the old school 1st gen back as an option, also maybe a slate colored style, gun metal gray that area....also, bigger screen. And multitask. Ehhh I love my jailbroken 3g though, will be hard to let go.

    same thing I was thinking. The all around chrome reminds me of the bold. I'm loving the look though, the back is sick. multi tasking would make it a completely different machine. TThat has been my biggest complaint of all 3 of the iphones, still love my 3gs though. I'd like to see the new battery tech in the new macbooks implemented into the 4G. And the touch sensitive case to use with a laptop would be amazing!

    I hope it's similar to those iPhone wedge-type concepts. Style wise I'd like full aluminum and black glass, like the iMac.

    No light up Apple logo, please, or at least an option to disable. Think battery life. On the other hand, it would make it easier to find in bed.

    A light-up Apple logo would be pretty, but I'm avoiding that until they at least double battery life.

    I'm hoping this next iPhone has two cameras, one on the back and then one behind the screen in the front to so I can make eye contact while video chatting.

    I've seen some of the Apple patent papers for this, but the rumors about a camera behind the screen in the front just died out

    If Apple can pull that off, I will reject all false gods.
