    Is anyone else a little bored with the current Iphone design? There have been a lot of rumblings about design changes for the next generation Iphone....what would you like to see? Bigger screen, smaller form factor, a sometimes rumoured flip phone?

    Seems like the change couldn't be too radical but what do you see coming?

    I think it's a nice size the way it is now. High res. screen and maybe a talk end buttons opposite the home button that could be used for games.

    I too like it as it is, but I'm a new iPhone user. My biggest request is a camera on the front and the ability to stream the video over something like Ustream. I also would like to have a non-AT&T iPhone.

    front camera would be great.

    an [easily] removable battery, not gonna hold my breath on that though.

    More grippy back, seriously my soap is easier to hold.

    built in projector!!!! ok fine i'm getting carried away.

    all in all though i really like the simple design. it's classy and makes it easy to customize if you wish with your own case and wallpaper.

    A full size screen and move the home button to the side. I wouldn't mind a hard rubber back aswell.

    I think the next iPhone will have an OLED or even an AMOLED display, 64GB of storage, a 1GHz ARM chipset and maybe new brushed metal look.
    I would really like if they would incorporate more aluminium elements to the phone like they did with the MacBooks. The black and white scheme isn't used anymore in other product lines.

    I doubt Apple will build an iPhone with a front-facing camera. I thought the main reason why there's no iChat app, is because of AT&T and their contract restrictions. I mean video chat over 3G would use alot of bandwith.

    i doubt we will se it, but i would really enjoy a keyboard. but there are limitations. if its a slide down, what if you turn it sideways etc... apple wouldnt go with it although it would be nice. this would be my ideal design:

    I would like to see the design a little sleeker like the iPod Touch and maybe a little slimmer...

    it would be cool if they made the screen stretch to the whole size of the phone. That would be nice. They can put the home button on the right side of the phone.

    After using the iPhone for over a year, it is broke.

    Compared to all the PYTs on the market right now, iPhone needs a face lift and some anti-aging cream.

    The funny thing is that the iPhone is STILL the slimmest all touch-screen smartphone out there >_> I don't understand why.. it could easily be beaten XD

    Not many ways you could go with the current design and I doubt that changes. You could make it thinner to the point where it breaks instantly if you touch it. You can't make it longer and certainly not wider. You could add a camera in the front but that won't happen. Maybe go back to the imac days and make it translucent...but that would look stupid. And I doubt you'd ever see a slide out keyboard.

    All in all, iphone 2G,3G, 3GS are going to be perfected with high-end features. Apple is considering to make the next iPhone more enterprise-oriented. Apple is listening.

    As I said, there's not a lot wrong with this from Apple's point of view.... BBC NEWS | Business | iPhone sales boost Apple results

    Having returned to iPhone following a foray into the BlackBerry world I for one am very happy. Sadly some people never are.

    I wouldn't mind a hard rubber back aswell.

    A rubberized back would be love! My iFrogz case is like that and it makes the phone much easier to hold on to.

    I'd like to the option of one on some models. If it were every model, then I wouldn't like it. I like how smooth the iPhone is now. It slides inside my pockets so easily the way it is.

    I actually like the current design, but how about more colors? Ones that match the old Apple multi color logo? Or the option to special order a phone with your favorite sports team logo on the back or something?

    I would really love to see a better screen, maybe an OLED 3D screen in the future.

    I wouldn't want a slide out keyboard, I've found that I can type much faster with a virtual keyboard...much faster!

    If anything slid out, how about a set of slideout gaming controls...talk about making the iphone and touch gaming giants...that would do it!
