    Apples next iPhone will be cased in Liquidmetal, according to reports.

    Apple iPhone 5 'to be cased in Liquidmetal' - Telegraph

    The iPhone 5, likely to be released later this year, is expected to be cased in a metallic glass, otherwise known as Liquidmetal, says a Korean news outlet citing industry sources.
    ...

    The same Korean news outlet has also predicted that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3, due to launch on May 3 in London, will be made out of high-tech ceramics.

    Interesting, indeed. I guess we will know soon enough. I don't care what it's made of as long as the build quality is top notch and the device is professional looking.

    I hope they go this route. The glass iphone just is too easy to break. No point in having a slick looking phone if you need to put it in a case to try and protect it from any little fall.

    Y'all may have seen this demonstration of liquid metal's elasticity, but if you haven't check it out.



    This would surely make the iPhone much more durable.

    It all comes down to money. Unless Apple has big enough economy of scale, you can kiss that Liquidmetal body goodbye. It's a sure thing that they won't cut into their own profits.

    I thought the same thing. Imagine an iPhone that one dropped will bounce back into your hand lol
