    Those packages look like the cheap Chinese cases you pick up at a cell phone case kiosk. Would be pretty funny if this authorized retailer ordered a bunch of these cases on a whim only to discover that they don't fit the new phones.

    Why would apple release specs on a phone to case makers when they haven't even announced it at all ?

    They always do it. There have been several Apple products revealed by case maker leaks. In many cases, it's not Apple who actually released the info. The case makers have someone steal a prototype from the factory, and then they make their own measurements from the prototypes. I think that is what happened this year.

    Nobody is going to spend thousands if not tens of thousands in tooling cost to make plastic inject molds on speculation. They have the specs, you can bet on it.

    Remember, the new iPhone is going to be the same across all carriers. It supports CDMA and GSM. So it's possible we just haven't seen a leak from those stores yet (we JUST got this leak from the AT&T store), or they won't get these cases until later, or whatever. There are a plethora of reasons other than "no iPhone 5 on Verizon or Sprint".

    It hasn't crossed anyone's mind that these could be for a new iPod touch, or the rumored "transitional, transformational" device?

    This, along with an amazing amount of evidence for an iPhone with the same form factor of the current iPhone 4 leads me to think that this isn't a phone.

    First of all, it has a silent switch, and speakers on the bottom, headset jack on the top... It is not an iPod touch.

    Secondly, even if this IS an iPod touch, the new iPhone will be even more kick *** in that case. There is absolutely ZERO chance Apple is releasing an amazing new 4" iPod touch and keeping the iPhone 4 at the same size. No chance at all.

    Apple is the undisputed king of marketing. We just had our first Apple store open up in Little Rock a couple of months ago and there were people camped out just to get in the store opening morning. I'm wondering what will happen a couple of days before the release? Ought to be nationwide crazy!

    First of all, the iPad has a silent switch. It's not iPhone exclusive. Also, the iPod touch can change and will change whenever Apple wants it to.

    Second, nothing says that Apple has to change the iPhone 4. It's a beautiful device as it is. I mean, cases are literally the ONLY proof that the iPhone 5 is going to be a different form factor, meanwhile there are tons of parts etc that indicate that the iPhone 5 will have the same form factor as the iPhone 4.

    I just think its stupid to say that there's ZERO chance that this isn't the form factor of the iPhone 5, when clearly there's a reasonable chance that it's not. It's based on a stolen prototype manufactured in china.

    But why make the ipod with a bigger screen than the iphone? Would create fragmentation which apple doesn't want. I think if the ipod had a larger screen the iPhone would also

    iPod touch does not need a silent switch - after 4 generations, Apple has made this clear.It doesn't even have dedicated speakers, or a mic for telephony, which are both also shown in the iPhone 5 dimensions! Also, it has no reason to have a rotation lock either (which is the original reason for the switch on the iPad), as most iPhone apps are portrait only.

    No, no one says that they have to, but it would be foolish not to in terms of investors. Especially after such a longer wait than usual. And, no case OEM would go to the trouble of manufacturing thousands of cases and distributing them just on a hunch, nevermind the dozens of them we've already seen doing so. And, if there is an iPod touch with a 4" screen, it would be foolish to think there won't be an iPhone with the same screen size.

    I said there is ZERO chance that this is an iPod touch, and like it or not, it's true.

    That is pretty much a stock case package for AT&T why bother making form fitting packages for their house brand of crap cases. The OEM's make nice packages for their over priced cases.
