    So with the new back on the iPhone 4 it is no longer rounded like the previous phones. How do you like it?

    Perhaps I'm just slow but I was looking at that picture and it hit me they are showing off how the phone just sits on the desk nice and flat. I love it, with a case to protect it I'll be able to put it on the counter, desk, etc. and not worry about it being used for spin the bottle LOL

    Lays flat on the desk, like the original version. I never did like how the 3G and 3Gs wobbled when on a desk.

    I like it flat. I didn't like the curve after the original so I'm happy to see it go back.

    I think the "flatness" will make it easier to hold when not using a case. There appears to be more surface area on the edges.

    That's a good point. I think the flat shape is also part of what allowed them to make it thinner.
    I wonder if there's going to be an uberthin flat iPod touch in september.. haha.

    Assuming the picture isn't edited it's also showing off the wide viewing angle of the screen.

    good catch never noticed that, I too love it flat, perhaps it was on a subconscious level but I would never put my phone down on flat surfaced only when it was time to charge it.

    I like it flat. I also can't wait to feel how 24% thinner actually translates to the hand.

    I liked how the 3G and 3GS felt in my hand. I had both of them. I never owned the 2G but when I held my friend's 2G , It didn't feel as nice in my hands. I also like the flat edges and that it stands up on it's own.

    I think this thing is going to be awesome.
    But then again, I think the 3GS is just perfect as is.

    that's funny I much prefer the feel of my 1st gen iPhone to my 3G. The 3g feels slippery, light and just not as much substance. I can't wait to feel how light the i4 is going to be?

    When this was leaked, one of the strange things that I liked about the design is that you could keep it up straight, horizontally, something you could never do with any former iPhone. It's small, I'll probably never use or notice it, but it's there, and it's cool.
