    I know it's all rumors, but boy does it ever look DEE-LISH! I still have mixed feelings about the repositioned headphone jack. Fall can't come soon enough

    It does look good, better have some good hardware cause personally iOS 6 just doesn't have enough wow factor for me. But a nice looking phone with some extra goodness inside and iOS 6 together should be a nice setup.

    Between those pictures and iOS 6 (so far), iPhone 5 is setting up to be a bigger flop then iPad 3. They will need to pull something out of their hat, or it will be a sad release. So far looks like I will upgrade my iPhone 4 to a 4s, unless they surprise us with something else.

    Like someone posted earlier in the comment section of the iMore blog, that should have been the look of the iPhone 4S, in my opinion.

    Yes, there are currently some impressive phones out there that are giving the iPhone a run for its money, and I'm sure Apple has taken note of it. The bar has been raised so high that I will be very surprised if Tim Cook and co. released a device that isn't ahead of everyone else.

    I'd have to use one hands on, so I am on the fence. Personally, I think a taller screen isn't my thing. Wider and taller would be better.

    I really hope it's more than an elongated 4/4s with a better camera and processor but the 4/4s is still a great design. I couldn't tell you what I want that would be impressive but it would be nice to see some new design direction.

    No a fan of it at all. If this were to be the next iteration of the iphone it shows to me that apple is indeed falling into a complacent attitude that Rim fell into and they will soon be replaced. Along with that the design lacks the "wow" factor and shows the laziness of the design team. They can yell and scream about keeping it simple and familiar but eventually people will hopefully begin to walk away

    The design is solid. Sure, it's nothing new or flashy, but it'll be great. 4G LTE and NFC payments will make this the best iPhone and best phone available in the market. It'll have more flourishes when it launches. And most people will put it in a case anyways. I know I'll have it in an Otterbox.

    It's not all about the look of the phone. With 4G LTE and NFC Payments, the new iPhone will not fail. It'll rule the market. And I'm not sure where you heard the iPad 3 was failing. Apple is selling more iPads than ever before.

    So lte and nfc( which a host of phones already out have) would make it rule the market? I think not.

    Seriously, what the heck does everyone want? Essentially, ALL smartphones are 4 to 5 inch rectangles with a few buttons here and there. They all look pretty much the same! People are so quick to say that they don't like this model phone for one reason or another. We've seen the concepts of see-through phones, the teardrop design, or the crap that fits around your hand like a spider. Guess what? They're concepts! They aren't going to be the real thing. Have you ever seen a concept car? They're years away--if ever at all. We put so much into the need to have a "radical" new design, but haven't all the iPhones essentially been the same since the beginning? A black rectangle with a circular button on the bottom--then update slowly throughout the years. Things change slowly when a product is working. Why change something radically if it's selling like no other phone on the market? If you're always looking to be blown away with something that looks like the new concept pictures you've seen, then you're always going to be disappointed. We all have options in what phone to buy. There are a lot of great smartphones out there. Buy one that works and meets your needs.

    Spot on. This is why competition is a very good thing. I've owned many a gadget over the years and it all really does come down to what works for you.
    I for one am very excited about the new iPhone, whatever ends up being the final design. My iPhone 4 is starting to feel a little dated

    I originally didn't like the looks of the "leaked" design, but it has grown on me a bit; however, if it ends up looking different than those photos, won't be disappointed.

    I'm not a fan of the 2 tone back. Not sure why the seemingly glossy part at the top and bottom. I would have liked it better if it was metal throughout. Glossy parts never fails to attract nasty looking fingerprints. Perhaps it has something to do with the radio, who knows.

    But i actually quite like the gun metal grey looking colour. Well, provided that that turns out to be the actual product.

    You know, i thought Apple would have gone with an all metal unibody last year. Since most of their products are already using it.

    So you think that an iPhone4S with 4G and NFC is enough to make it the best smartphone available in the market nowadays? Looks like someone is not seeing what the competition is doing at the moment. Things have evolved...

    Well let's see. iPad 1 comes out and it's impossible to get for months. iPad 2 comes out and it's sold out for a month. iPad 3 comes out and there are no people in line during the store opening and you can buy dozens of them right off the shelf at most electronics stores. Yeah I think nobody cared about its release. And just to think that I was worried that I needed to get to the store hours before opening to get in line. Imagine my surprise when I got there and I was the only one there.

    Windows Phone 8 is looking a lot better at this point, especially if they load them with Nokia's Pureview camera technology. I've got an AT&T upgrade coming my way, and it just might got to WP.

    Looking at the pictures, the sim card slot looks the same size as the current iPhone. I thought there was rumours of it using the Nano sized sim?

    I'm sure those will come with the next gen iPhone next year since this would have been in production before the nano sim became the new standard.
