What if Apple decides to punish us and those in charge of leaking spyshots, but announcing that they had plans to release the new iPhone HD this summer but due to leaked info, they will scrap the project and make us wait a whole year and release the next iPhone next summer ?

Doubt it. They aren't stupid enough to let competitors have an extra full year to catch up and in many ways, surpass the iPhone, which some have done already.
My question is how is Jobs going to make the presentation good when we all know what it looks like?

I think it's most likely that this is a prototype that doesn't reflect the final design. There's probably many different looking prototypes at Apple HQ. I find it very hard to believe they'd let an employee leave The building with the chosen final design.

In reality, how many different designs can they have? They aren't going to go from one extreme to the next. If you look at the majority of touchscreen phones, they all basically look the same from a hardware perspective. Maybe one has some trim that looks different, a slideout keyboard or it's more round at the edges, but they are still relatively the same. While this may not be the final design, I doubt it will look drastically different.

1. can not exist with today's technology
2. would not be ergonomically sound
3. would suck
4. is really ****ing ugly.
There's this large faction of fanboys who think "the thinner the better"... Sorry but I enjoy a luxury product feel, not a piece of paper feel. iPod touch feels terrible because it's too thin. It's the only device that feels better with a case.

And to those saying they might've redesigned after the leak, that would never happen. Apple takes half a year to design the iPhone, then they spend the next half testing durability and functionality. You can bet they are already working on the preliminary stages of designing the 2011 iPhone.
